This is not the end, we are still asking you to share "your South Coast bushfire experience” through your photographs and stories. Your memories of this tragedy, that unfolded over the course of our spring/summer months, are important to the overall picture of this landmark community exhibition. "By sharing your personal experiences through your photographs and stories, you are playing a significant role in helping us all understand the effects, large and small, on our community as a whole. "You, can share your experiences during the fire with the community, by uploading your photographs and stories directly from your phone or computer to our website.

To preserve your story for the future, CABBI is also proposing to conduct a more expansive South Coast bushfire oral history project following the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you at the exhibition and hearing your experiences. We also hope you will add your name to our list of interviewees for the oral history project."

Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
