We are in love with Central Victoria & we want you to fall for Bendigo too.
In each of the rooms at Stay Social we feature Bendigo Art. In guest room one we have art work by local artist Deanna Neville of Walmer. Her photos were part of her recent exhibition called “Ingredients for a Road Trip.” We thought these photos suited perfectly our farmhouse style wooden door bedhead.
Deanna is a practicing artist who explores photo-narrative techniques to tell stories. Much of her work involves the facilitation of communities experiencing hardship or change, such as farmers experiencing long dry years, flood-affected townships and communities traumatized by Black Saturday Fires. Deanna works closely with people and their stories, using photography to help them explore their local links with those they know, with whom they can reconnect.
We love how her art practice is community development that supports the community in a creative, meaningful and sustainable way.
Deanna is pictured here with participants from a community project she recently facilitated in Maldon.
