Floating – ‘Meetings with Remarkable People’ Stage 2
‘Floating – Meetings with Remarkable People’ Stage 2, was a cross-cultural development project linking people from Australia and Japan who were affected by natural disasters. Crossroad Arts collaborated with communities in Sendai, Yamamoto cho and Mackay Queensland, which resulted in the creation of three films and inclusive arts performances in Australia and Japan.
This project aimed to re-engage the elderly and those with disability back into the cultural and social lives of their communities. ‘Floating – Meetings with Remarkable People’ Stage 2, built upon the creative recovery work carried out in the Australia-Japan Foundation funded Gama project in 2016.
