Bystander is a project that takes the real life experiences of people living in a community and turns them into performance. With the help of Arts Margaret River, Whiskey & Boots (Mark Storen & Georgia King) with photographer/musician Holly Garvey & musician Tom Garvey collected stories and photos from people in the region. These accounts were turned into a performance that was  shown in Augusta and Cowaramup. Following on from the live performance, this exhibition comprises of recorded audio from each of the local ‘storytellers’.

Community Story Quilt which features 11 original quilt panels created by local artisans and school children.

Apron Project which features aprons created by local residents from a variety of materials.

Allow plenty of time to look at the various works and listen to all the stories. Drinks can be purchased from the Corner Bar and taken into the exhibition.
Thanks to everyone that has contributed to this exhibition and to Margaret River Hotel for providing the venue.
