Humans of Kangaroo Island
"Humans of Kangaroo Island started as a distraction for me after going through a disaster in early 2020. I didn’t want to think about the bushfire and being homeless anymore, I wanted to hear some positive stories.
After losing everything in the Black Summer fires and having to relocate to a town 100 kilometres away, I felt unsettled and lost. I decided to get to know my new community and neighbours by chatting with them over a cuppa.
A few conversations in, I realised how much this was helping me, it was becoming a big part of my healing journey after facing adversity. I hoped to bring everyone back together, bring the community a little bit closer, so I decided to put this project online, make it accessible to everyone and call it Humans of Kangaroo Island."
