FRONT YARD SLIDE SHOWS is a digital storytelling projection project that asks people to make a slide show about the history of their house and the stories of those who have lived there.  In this first version, 7 slide shows have been created in collaboration with local Unley residents working with lead artists, and presented during 2023 SA History Festival.

This project aims to generate local participation at a grass roots level, by focussing on people’s lives and the places where they live. It responds to a documented desire from residents to come together and connect with others in artistic activities that foster and enhance the local spirit of Unley.
