Kinglake Ranges community launches digital archive of arts recovery projects

The Kinglake Ranges community has released a digitally produced record of the range of projects in their arts-led recovery from the 2009 bushfires. 

The archive has been established for use by artists, organisations and communities to enable the development of future programs to facilitate creative recovery projects. 

The project was funded by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal and supported by Regional Arts Victoria.

The publication was designed to capture and preserve the Kinglake Ranges journey of arts-led recovery and provide an insight into the hearts and minds of its artists as they struggled to support their community in the darkest of times.
