Digital StreamMemories in Space & PlaceClaire Rosslyn WilsonWhat makes a certain place unique? The event explores our relationship with objects and how they connect us to the world around us. According to Claude Levi-Strauss, material things are goods to think with, a way to reflect on our past and come up with new ideas. Through associational, lateral and unexpected angles, we track and share stories of "things" in the streets of Canberra from diverse perspectives. Claire Rosslyn Wilson will facilitate online conversations in order to solicit dialogues on the creative process and the influence of place in creative writing.

Let's Talk About Death, Baby
Gabriela GeorgesHow do you reconcile an acceptance of mortality with a story of grief and loss? Gabriela Georges will facilitate a conversation on the elements of death, guiding the narrative through topics like funerals, relationships, bucket lists and afterlife. The dialogue may be confronting and challenging for some viewers - as is confronting death itself.

Digital StreamWriters' RoadMarta Skrabacz, Katerina Bryant, Neha Kale, Alex Bennetts, Anthony NoceraIn March 2017, Elizabeth Harrower retraced the route she took when she drove from Sydney to the first Adelaide Writers’ Week in the 1960s. In homage to this Australian writer, Noted artists Neha Kale, Anthony Nocera, Alex Bennetts, Katerina Bryant and Marta Skrabacz are sharing their road trip saga: in audio, visual or written crafts, they’ll share their literal and literary journey to Canberra, taking pleasure (or discomfort) in the act of travel and what they anticipate at Noted in 2017.

Digital StreamHey RhysTegan WebbHey Rhys is an online story project that combines words, music and visual art. It starts with a single scrap of communication between two separated humans. The communication is caught by a young alien girl who lives with her family on a distant planet. The girl translates their words into digital music, to make sure all those who are looking for them understands that they are in love.
Hey Rhys might be a grand metaphor for how young people communicate on the internet. It might be abstract interstellar fan fiction. It might be a love story.

Digital StreamNoises at NotedCraig GarrettWe're listening. Craig Garrett gives us a peek into the national overview of the Australian arts sector by collecting local stories. The folks behind Noted, the Tent Embassy, people speaking Ngunawal, the Carillion, politicians speaking, busses, the dawn chorus, radio... What are the sounds you know to be emblemic of Canberra? Can you hear the rich textures in Canberra's tapestry?

Digital StreamFear: A LabyrinthLinda ChenWhat is it that scares us today? The fantastical? The speculative? The seemingly benign? Often the structures that define what we find terrifying arise from dialogues between the innate, the external and the imaginative - less 'things' than entire frames of mind. Linda Chen explores this aspect of the human psyche as she takes participants through a virtual 'Haunted House' constructed from their own fears.

Frankenstein was the Name of the Monster
Alex BennettsWhat is a story? Whether sprung from one writer or many, a narrative can string together a fleet of experiences. With participants contributing parts to the ultimate story, this corpse of a fiction story will tease and toy with the nature of creation and the craft of a story. The style, the format, even the choice of language doesn't matter! At the end of it, writer Alex Bennets will piece together a patchwork of a hell of a story. In the words of Mary Shelley, we will pioneer a new story and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation.

Bill poetries deteriorate in the weather, end up in the streets and pollute our waterways through the stormwater system. Bill poetries make areas look uncared for and attract other litter. Councils can spend a lot on cleaning up after illegally posted bills including flyers and advertising material – money which could be better spent on more useful programs. Bill poetries are advertisements. The advertisers have not taken responsibility for ensuring that they do not become litter. The community then pay for their clean up. There are no exemptions for bill poetries put up without consent. They are items that become litter. –
