At the Coalface

“At the Coalface” documents the work of Arts Recovery Project Officer, Marilyn Gourley, who works with fire-affected communities to foster arts projects and support artists through the process of rebuilding. The film follows the stages of recovery through the seasons, and explores the community’s creative response in parallel with the transforming landscape.


“At the Coalface” was conceived, directed and produced by one of Regional Arts Victoria’s Regional Arts Development Officers, Verity Higgins and captured by filmmaker David Brown.


“At The Coalface” was produced with assistance from VicHealth.
