Curated by: Morgan Graham
 

Places and spaces are defined through human interaction, and all locations have a multiplicity of meanings (and reading). The ICE Clips in this current selection seek to explore the how places and locations are owned and defined through active community participation.

Werrington ‘Flip Book’

At the end of 2012, ICE produced Wearing The Crown, which invited young people from Werrington to a series of workshops on photography and self-expression. These participants were encouraged to express themselves through photography, moving images and sound recordings and share their experiences of living in Werrington. The resultant stories went on to form part of Penrith City Council's Neighbourhood Renewal Program in Werrington.
