It takes people to make a city. Literally, to dream it, to think it, to plan it, to build it. Figuratively, too bring it to life. A building, no matter how beautiful, is without life, until people walk through the door, laughing, singing, dancing, yelling, bell-ringing or to begin a journey.
The small stories are important, they create big stories, and big stories tell us who we are, where we came from, and how our characer as a city, as a people, will unfold.
The Inside Story, a City of Ballarat project, is about gathering those stories and sharing them to create a big picture of three beautiful buildings in Ballarat. The stories we found, and that were contributed, are here. The films we made are showing this weekend at the Ballarat Heritage Weekend, the full programme is here.
Here is just a taster of what will lie in wait for you this weekend. Please check below for screening information.
And share your story from one of these buildings here: http://www.ballaratheritageweekend.com.au/tis/ (we’d love that).
