Lake Illawarra Memory and Place
The Lake Illawarra MAP Project is collection of short films or digital stories, ranging from contemporary video to archival film footage. Each one of these films contains a strong sense or 'memory' and many of them reflect on the environmental, cultural or historical significance or the Lake to individuals and the community.  Some of the stories are not specifically about the Lake but they are about the people who live near or visit the Lake and the things that are important to them. The stories have made through collaborations between community members and experienced writers and film makers. The digital stories in the Lake Illawarra MAP Project were produced during 2008 and 2009.
