Emerging from Fire Exhibition

Thank you for your submissions. We are currently reviewing your photographs in preparation for the upcoming exhibition in August.

About the exhibition

Emerging from Fire is a photographic exhibition of the 2019 Bunyip Complex Fires which affected the communities of Tynong North, Garfield North, Bunyip North, and Tonimbuk.

Having come through the adversity of the 2019 fires, this exhibition is an opportunity to reflect on the community's resilience, as together we look ahead to the future in these special parts of Cardinia Shire.

Council will create a curated exhibition from the photographs provided.

The exhibition will take place at the Cardinia Cultural Centre from Friday 5 August – Sunday 11 September 2022.
