Abstract

My Story, Your Story: Talking About Television, Ecology and Wellbeing was a series of presentation and feedback performances by Dr Bruce Fell in which he worked within formal settings to create face-to-face dialogue with members of local communities to facilitate reflection and yarning about the relationship between media, ecological and community wellbeing. The work created dialogue with the general public drawing on Dr Fell's research. Dr Fell undertook this particular approach to facilitate a 'rural' general public in reflecting and yarning about their relationship with community, television, ecology and wellbeing. In this respect, Dr Fell used the performance-presentations to gauge how the various communities responded to the content of his research.The presentation-performances played in a variety accessible public locations and catered to a variety of tastes: a local restaurant, an ecological learning centre, a library, a university and a community centre. As a result, Dr Fell was able to perform too and receive feedback from a broad cross-section of community members.The work consisted of a series of presentation-performances that ran between two and two and half hours. Each work consisted of an initial presentation-performance, followed by dialogue, leading into light refreshments where audience participants were able to network and discuss their perceptions of Dr Fell's research. The events took place in Bathurst in April, June and December, and in Orange and Dubbo in September 2010.
