‘The arts’ come in many guises and play diverse roles in remote, rural and regional communities. To explore this in more depth, FRRR received support from the H&L Hecht Trust to undertake the Art Resides Here project. Authentic community voices and stories from five Victorian communities were captured by Julie Millowick, photographer, photo-journalist and creative producer.

Each community had engaged with the arts in a different way and for different purposes, and over the years, each had been supported by FRRR to deliver arts-based projects. Their stories were shared at Artlands Victoria in October 2018, and the beautiful photos and words from the community have now been published in a book. Hard copies are now in communities, and copies have also been sent to local libraries in the featured towns, as well as the National Library.

This is a great advocacy tool for the power and place of culture and the arts in disaster management.
