Don’t forget to come to the Edward River library and check out the exhibition.
These lovely ladies were relaxing on the sofas, watching the video display of photos from the last 4 projects (since 1990). They were enjoying a trip down memory lane, spotting people and places they recognised from their past. Pictured from left to right are Rita Jefferies and her daughters, Cheryl Jandesu and Linda Sharp. Rita moved to Deni from South Australia 61 years ago. Cheryl and Linda have moved away from town but were born and raised in Deni, attending North school and the High School. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you Kate. Organising an event like A Day in the Life of Deniliquin involves a huge amount of time and energy and it's all done by volunteers from the local community. This post is an appreciation for a certain person who has not only been involved with the project for a few decades now, has been the driving force behind the 2021 installation. Kate Butler's commitment and passion for this project has been nothing short of amazing. Kate managed it during a global pandemic, she kept the committee motivated and has done the lion's share of work behind the scenes. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Kate, for ensuring the continuation of this important community record. Here's to 2031! ... See MoreSee Less

VIDEO INTERVIEWS In 2021 the 'A Day in the Life of Deniliquin' project received Create NSW Country Arts Support Program funding through South West Arts to produce several video interviews with both photographers and subjects who have been involved in the project over the decades. The interviews provide personal in depth views of the stories behind the images. Huge thanks to Olivia Duffey for compiling the interviews. You can visit the website and watch the videos here: www.dayinthelifeofdeniliquin.com/video-interviews/
FUNDING & SPONSORSHIP Funding support from Edward River Council, Create NSW, Deniliquin Business Chamber, Outback Theatre for Young People, South West Arts and Deni RSL helped with an update of the website, the installation of a mural of images in Cressy St, Deniliquin and the creation of the video interviews with prominent participants and community members. www.create.nsw.gov.au/funding-and-support/arts-and-cultural-funding-program/
WILL I SEE MY PHOTO? You can also view all image galleries since 1990 on the website. The organising committee makes a selection from the thousands of photos we receive. All the photos we receive are stored in archives for preservation: www.dayinthelifeofdeniliquin.com/galleries-2/

"The beauty of a place, which can't be bottled or bought, the kindness of a community, brilliant sunsets, fresh air, birdsong -Deniliquin is the epitome of what we love about country towns." (Catriona Rowntree on her recent visit to Deniliquin).
The 2021 gallery goes live on our website tomorrow, exactly a year since community members spent 24 hours documenting a typical day in Deni. We had thousands of entries, and all will be stored in archives at the Historical Society. The committee had the very difficult job of making the final selection for the online gallery. Head to the website tomorrow and check out some of the wonderful shots from the 2021 project. Enjoy! www.dayinthelifeofdeniliquin.com/galleries-2/... See MoreSee Less
