Back to Back Theatre brought its Democratic Set project to Ballarat Community Health Centre’s new building in Lucas this week, and community groups have filmed 15-second sections on their part of Ballarat. 

The finished product will be shown at the centre next Wednesday at 2pm. 

BCHC staff have taken part in the project, as well as officers from the City of Ballarat, and representatives from Scope, McCallum, school students, theatre groups and even a horse. 

BCHC chief executive officer Robyn Reeves said it was a great way for the organisation to launch its community art space. 

“It’s been fantastic fun. It’s given the place a real sense of activity and enthusiasm to the place,” she said. 

Sarah Mainwaring, an actor with Back to Back who has travelled around the world with the Democratic Set, said it was an interactive way for people to share their community. 

“The videos go up online, so people can look them up and see themselves, and share

them across the world,” she said.
