The Mapping Exercise

A Freo site specific audio storytelling project, one released each day of the festival

Stories connect us again, to each other and ourselves.  Just like drawing dotted lines between stars to build an image of an existing constellation, the mapping exercise takes the seemingly isolated pockets of our lives and connects them to create something bigger and more beautiful.  

We invite you to listen to human stories of this place, laugh out loud and be moved. You’ll find ridiculous stories, stories of wonder,  stories that hit you in the chest.  Stories so firmly located in place that, when you return, you will always be reminded of them.

Experience the Mapping Exercise online and around town

Images related to the story will be posted up around Fremantle with QR codes and you are invited to scan the code to unlock the story.  You can also listen at home when the weather is woolly.
