If these questions have inspired you, we invite you to express your interest in participating in the Stories of Service project.
Join us in creating a piece of social history that truly reflects the people behind Vinnies, capturing diverse and authentic voices, and celebrating a centenary of wonderful work that will inspire Vinnies into the future!
We’re looking for up to ten people from across the Vinnies Canberra/Goulburn community to participate in a multi-week workshop series, where you’ll produce your own short film sharing your Vinnies journey. We aim to create a diverse group, including members, volunteers, staff, and a broad demographic.
No prior filmmaking experience is required. The workshops are suitable for everyone, from beginners to those with some video-making or digital media background. They’re fun, supportive, and professional! All you need is a willingness to learn new skills, an interest in sharing your Vinnies journey, and a desire to contribute to the social history of this wonderful organisation.
Your films will be celebrated on the big screen at a public launch as part of the centenary celebrations. Check out our past digital storytelling projects here to get a sense of what you will create.
To join this amazing project, please complete the form below, telling us a bit about yourself and why you’d like to take part.
The workshop will likely run from June – August 2023 with dates to be confirmed once the final participants have been selected. Workshops will be run out of PhotoAccess at the Manuka Arts Centre in Griffith, 2603.
An information session will be held prior to the workshops commencing on May 11th to answer any questions you may have, click here to register.
Expressions of Interest close Monday 22nd May 2023 5pm.
