The Australian Bureau of Worthiness is a residency model for creating live performance in a dynamic seminar style, and asks the question of the community it is made in, ‘What makes your day worth it?’. Through the collection of quietly inspired stories, anecdotes and images of the every-ness of every day, a polling of collective worth is gathered and shown in an empty shop amidst the working community from which the perspectives on worth were taken.
The bureau, using some lo-fi technology and some highly honed skills, questions and connects your responses to map how our ideas and perspectives ultimately bind us together, and how the place we choose to live and work in impacts upon our days – and directly following- our own personal worthiness.
Comprising the formidable talents of Emma Beech, Tessa Leong and James Dodd, the A.B.W. has conducted a range of research and presentations in various locations including Horsham, Goolwa, Hindley St, the Falls Festival, Port Adelaide and Viborg.
