If On A Winter’s Day a Traveler

If On A Winter’s Day A Traveler was a participatory project that collected stories from the public. These were edited into three posters about belonging, death, nature, fiction, and writing itself, and displayed in the city as part of the Winter Arts Festival. Funded by the City of Perth.
