Stories of St Marys

As the sun sets on Thursday 12th May, the St Marys Corner precinct will be all lights and action. Large outdoor screens will be set up on lawn and will project short films and video art produced by local filmmakers. Residents are invited to pop down from dusk and watch the films or interact with the screen and actually select the stories that want to watch from the local area. The films have been linked to locations on an interactive map of St Marys so residents can link the stories back to actual places in their Neighbourhood.

Local residents are being encouraged to bring picnic blankets down to sit on the lawn or mingle with the film makers. Tea, Coffee and warm soup will be available on the night. Parking at the centre is available.
