Together: the stories of us
A people powered project aimed at showcasing the diversity of Queenslanders through stories, photos, videos, and recipes.
Without doubt we are living in an interesting time due to the COVID pandemic. But we are not alone.
Together we are supporting one another. Together we are learning new skills, and ways to keep in touch. Together we are aiming to inspire, celebrate, and stay socially connected even when we are physically distanced. Together we will thrive.
By sharing our stories we can connect, find aspects of ourselves in others and of others in ourselves. We all have stories and that is what brings us together.

A Fishy Story
As a 79 year old wannabe artist living alone covid seemed to be the ideal opportunity to paint lots of watercolour paintings.
Arranged for everything to be delivered food, medicine, paper etc. no one visited! March, April May all blank on my calendar. BUT The one half of my imaginative, colourful, innovative brain was overcome by the logical practical side.
I spent hours pouring over covid statistics, trumpisms, shutdowns lock-ins and fiscal policies half of which flew right over my head!
Now it’s faded life is normal, in Queensland that is, my imagination is BACK. I discovered new materials e.g watercolour pencils see the fishy drawing enclosed.
So glad I am seeing loads of things to paint in my mind. Just need to make a fortune now to enable new mediums paints brushes paper.
