During the Flood Stories artist residency, the project attracted over 160 participants during its 9-day stay at The Lismore Quad in April and May, 2021.
People arrived at the shipping container, changed into the Flood Stories 'uniform' of raincoat and gumboots and walked the streets of Lismore's CBD while listening to one or more of our storytellers share their story from the 2017 major flood.
