Valley Inhabitants is a multi-disciplinary arts project documenting untold stories from residents and iconic businesses in the Woden Valley. The project celebrates Woden’s rich history by exploring stories about relationships, place making and what defines a community and it’s culture.

The Woden Arts Program is collaborating with renowned podcaster Jen Seydenhelm, photographer Martin Ollman and sound composer Harvey Welsh, to create a suite of short documentaries showcasing the evolving nature of the Woden Valley. Focusing on people, Valley Inhabitants will weave together old and new content and the voice of local residents to reveal accessible quirky tales exploring how quickly people and place change – yet, at the same time contribute to the formation of a local community and culture.
