After Yasi

So many memories. Had an interesting call from the Creative Recovery Network today, more on  what this might mean later.

After Yasi

Could you find your smile again when everything around you looked smashed and splintered after a cyclone?

The memory of that Yasi filled cyclone night is something that will never be fully erased, but the kindness since shown is something that with time will be more powerful.

This book illustrates with photographs and stories, the resilience and strong spirit of the Cassowary Coast people recovering their smile within and rebuilding their community spirit after Cyclone Yasi.

Especially suitable for community arts workers, health workers, volunteers, artists, writers, council, community planners, working in natural disaster zones and looking for practical ways creativity can assist in recovery.  May also be inspiring to people in natural disaster areas seeking inspiration to start their own community healing projects.

Book by June Perkins and Residents of the Cassowary Coast. June was a guest blogger for ABC Open’s Aftermath Project.
