The Lost Generation Project is about finding the lost stories of people with intellectual disabilities, many who have been institutionalised for most of their lives.  It is about hearing these stories and recognising and celebrating people who have traditionally been socially isolated. The project revolves around the central aims of assisting the core participants, people with intellectual disabilities, to connect to their communities through arts and culture. The Lost Generation Project has found unique people from across Australia  and provided them with the technology and skills to tell their stories on film.  Each core project participant or storyteller is offered the opportunity to make a short film that tells their story. Simone Flavelle is the Manager/Executive Producer of this project and she will be giving us the opportunity to see some of these films, an experience that cannot be underestimated.  Storytellers have been ‘found’ through their films and we need to ensure they do not become ‘lost’ again.

To RSVP please either contact our administrator, Polly De Giorgi or visit our website.
