Calling Landcare Legends
8 Nov 2008
Published To

Landcare Queensland needs your help to find Queensland’s Landcare Legends.

Thanks to a grant from the Q150 Community Funding Program, Landcare Queensland will be helping to celebrate Queensland’s one hundred and fiftieth birthday by ‘Celebrating the History of Landcare through Digital Storytelling’ during 2009.

Landcare Queensland will work with ten Landcare Legends to create short digital stories about their contribution to the landcare movement. The digital stories will be created using PlaceStories, digital storytelling software developed by community cultural development organisation Feral Arts. The completed Landcare Legends PlaceStories will then be hosted online at the placestories website for everyone to enjoy and will also be showcased at the 20th Queensland Landcare Conference being held in Longreach, October 2009 where an award will be presented to the best landcare legends story producer.

So If you know a Landcare Legend in your area who you think deserves this accolade then we would love to hear from you.

Landcare Legends can be either an individual or a group and will be supported by Landcare Queensland in creating and publishing their story.

To find out more or to nominate a Landcare Legend please contact Justin at Landcare Queensland on justin@landcare.org.au or (07) 3211 4413.
