The Stories of Strangers Project explores the idea that everyone sees something different when they look at a piece of art, coloured by their memories, experiences, and imagination. With this, Stories of Strangers wants to know what you think, feel or imagine when you look at each piece of art. Stories can be anything – a tall tale, a true tale, a poem, or a good one-liner. They can be in any voice and any length, just as long as they’re yours and inspired by the art. All ages and abilities are welcome to tell a story. 

The project, which culminated in an exhibition at Art Space on The Concourse, NSW had over 90 story submissions, including musical compositions, will continue to share contributions on this website.
