PhotoVoice – Renewal & Resilience

Support those still struggling to rebuild.

With the ongoing impact from Covid 19 restrictions many of those local residents who were impacted by the Black Summer Bushfires 2020. 

So why is it important?

As a community it is important to connect and support each other when in times of distress and disaster. Our kindness and caring gives all of us the feeling of engagement towards those in need. “Give Where you live”

PhotoVoice - Renewal and Resilience

The Southern Highlands Foundation was tasked with distributing the FireAid2020 appeal funds. One project that these funds has supported is PhotoVoice, a photographic competition exhibiting incredible images from the 2019/2020 Bushfires. With such strong community support these images and others have been collated into a coffee table style photobook.

The Purpose

With the aim to sell this amazing Photo Essay all the proceeds will go back to supporting those still struggling to rebuild. It could be via a community brokerage, distribution further FireAid cards or other community engagement initiatives like workshops to help build support and connection

Today I picked up a copy of the Photo Voice Book from Wingello Shop and after flicking through the pages I was awash with a million different emotions – the sadness and heartache but also that sense of pride in seeing and remembering all the brave, good people who appear in our darkest moments. The book dredges up a lot of memories and sadness but it is also a visual reminder of the courage, kindness and resilience that is inside all of us. Wingello Resident
