Burning Stories: art, food and stories
Burning Stories is a new opportunity to tell stories of resilience and strength that resulted from the 2009 Black Saturday fires in Bendigo.
Burning Stories is a project initiated by Seeds Bendigo, and gives people who experienced the Black Saturday fires an opportunity to tell their story, and the unexpected good things that came from that experience.
Community artists Ben Winspear and Cassie O’Toole will also be on hand to help people create beautiful mosiac art.
Alongside the stories and art, a pizza oven will be build, acknowledging that community is often built around food.
There are some special school holiday times for Burning Stories – download program here.
