Summary:
  • Artists tell our stories. Our visual artists, theatremakers, writers, dancers and musicians all explore what it means to be Australian and confront the challenging issues of our time. They create narratives that examine who we are, how we live and what matters in our world. Right across Australia, there are thousands of arts stories being created every year. Big Story Country is a selection of 35 of these stories, told in their own words by the artists. They speak of the creative process and about the communities that spawn them - from the Tiwi Islands to Tennant Creek and Tamworth.
