Bringing creative knowledge and insights into Canberra's public spaces
The new STORYBOX program across Canberra's Civic and City West Precincts is called Inside/Out and is supported through partnerships with major national cultural and educational institutions and local cultural agencies.
As well as the signature STORYBOX Cube, the program also pilots use of our outdoor digital plinths to support outdoor storytelling and civic arts programming.

Digital Plinths across the City West Precinct have launched with a series of reflections from Canberran artists and students on the role of art and creativity in everyday life.
This work draws on Craft ACT's Nuture series produced with Canberran artists and makers during Covid lockdowns.
These works invite citizens to 'Pause. Stop. Wonder' as they go about their daily journeys. They also provoke cities to rethink the role of outdoor digital programming, given the renewed importance of public spaces to community wellbeing.
"The wonderful thing about STORYBOX in Canberra is that we are able to join up some of the most important national institutions in our city, and invite them to participate in an opportunity to share their digital collections with all Canberrans and visitors to our city."
