World Building, 2016

A cinematic workshop

World Building developed at Djuirite (Mt Arapalies) as part of Arts House’s program Time Place Space:NOMAD in Wotjobaluk Country of the Wergeia Language Group in Dec 2016.

The plan for a creative activity at Mt. Arapilies took inspiration from the 5D Institute collaborative disciplinary approach to build a cinematic world to serve the story or stories we wanted to tell. In cinema, worldbuilding serves the story, not just plot. Which means the process supports mood, theme, conflict, character, culture, and setting. It doesn’t have to move only the sequence of events further. The details of the world we’ve created can and should engage with the whole narrative, not just action and event. We explore issues of scarcity, resilience, of place and nationhood, and art-making at Mt Arapilies in 2024: where the water almost reaches.
