In 2020 the City of Kalamunda’s programming went virtual after
the expansion and disruption of COVID-19. This change in pace,
engagement and impact on community connection inspired
the year’s Young Creatives Kalamunda programming to be an
intergenerational anthology, a compilation of our community’s
stories surrounding the theme:
The Change. From this concept,
we received a multitude of stories, artworks and poems
showcasing unique, personal outlooks and commentaries on
the evolving world around us, of ageing, changes in circumstance
and even a little magic.
We hope that these works, which have all been showcased in
this anthology invoke a sense of connection to the community,
offer a new perspective on your perception of normal, and
incite a reflection of your own vision of the year beyond 2020,
the year of change.
