Someplace That I Used To Know

  • LOCATION: Meet at The Festival Hub
  • WHEN: 5 April 2017 - 9 April 2017


Someplace That I Used To Know will take you to places, and talk to people, that arent there anymore. Its about observing change, remembering our shared pasts, and considering how we are shaped by where we live. Emma Gibson retraces a friendship from the past, and its moments in and around Garema Place. This audio tour is an unfinished conversation, with digression and detours, and no final words.

You’re encouraged to experience Garema Place anew, and document the world that once was..

Starting at The Festival Hub, this audio walking tour will take you to various places across Civic. BYO headphones and audio device (smart phones will work best).
