Plein Air Residency Program: Jeanti St Clair: Flood Stories

Event Photo

The Quad is thrilled to welcome local artist; Jeanti St Clair who will be taking up residence in The Quad in 2020 - this March/April as part of the Plein Air Residency program.  "For me, Flood Stories is a way for our Northern Rivers community to reflect on our preparedness for future floods and climate emergencies, and we will do this through both telling and listening to our stories of the 2017 flood that devastated our region," Jeanti said.

This project builds on my practice as a documentary maker and audio walk producer, including the Nimbin Soundtrail. I am broadly inspired by the Empathy Museum’s A Mile in My Shoes project, which suggests that when we walk as if in someone’s shoes, we are more open to understanding their experiences. Flood Stories will also provide a reflective focus for our community to remember the flood on this third anniversary."
