The Leading Lights are a South Australian network of regionally based digital producers, who have been supported by illuminart in the specialised practice of digital storytelling and placemaking.
Our mentees in this program have been assisted to produce digital media stories of significance to their community and have been involved in the creation of public projection events. They have been able to work with illuminart in professional digital media opportunities that build their skills and connect them to other practitioners.
The Leading Lights were involved in a large cross regional project that connected all of their communities – illuminart’s Port to Port production for regional SA. Since the completion of Port to Port, the Leading Lights continue to collaborate with each other and illuminart on projects including Rugged, Whyalla 50th Celebration, Lights of Christmas Rockhampton and many other projects.
Participants included Susanne Wegener, Care Vaughan, Nisa Schebella, Sammi Lane, Kellie Higginbottom, Caroline Hammat, and Nadia Cusamano.
