My Story Our Stories

My Story Our Story (MSOS) provides opportunities for people to convey their stories and experiences with others, while sharing their personal aspirations, hopes and dreams. MSOS has delivered a number of successful projects utilising a narrative centred approach to engender greater understanding, empathy and reflection among individuals, groups and communities across regional NSW.  Commissioned MSOS projects include ‘Then and Now ; Tales from Orange’s Migrant/Refugee Community,’ (Orange Youth Art Festival / NSW Department of Education); ‘Through my Eyes’ (Greater Western Area Health Service); Life through a Lens (Kids Xpress Inc) exhibited at the Art Gallery of NSW), and Young Sparks (Essential Energy/NSW Family & Community Services). MSOS projects promote community harmony and resilience and explore the potential of individuals and communities through their unique stories, voices and identities. 


My Story Our Stories is a Community Connect Central West initiative, which fosters collaborative opportunities between Councils, NGO's, local service providers and our culturally diverse communities.  

In 2015, twenty-five people from different cultural backgrounds visited the Canobolas Rural Technology High School to have their portrait taken and be interviewed by year 9 students. The resulting stories and images were presented as a public exhibition during the Orange Youth Arts Festival and will contribute toward the development of a substantial cultural archive; a public record of the richness and diversity of cultures
in Central Western NSW.
