At the heart of every culture and community, lies a story. Whether it’s the dreamtime Rainbow Serpent of Aboriginal Australia or the mythical Greek epic of The 12 Labours of Hercules, stories are ameans by which people come together and collective identities and histories are forged.This year, these myths and mythopeias are just a few of the many stories that are being revisited, reinterpreted and reimagined for the Queenscliffe Literary Festival – but not how you might expect.
QG&W presents Historia, an exhibition of 32 printmakers’ works inspired by various myths and mythopaiea for the annual Queenscliffe Literary Festival (QLF).
