One hundred females and one hundred males, each representing a year from 0-100 are being interviewed and photographed for this Book Incubator community project.
All participants live or work in the Greater Bunbury Area and all are making a positive contribution to their community.

Ten children with a wide range of disabilities showed their abilities as they created books in a school holiday workshop. The process was challenging and engaging and the results speak for themselves.
Fabulous books were created by the participants and their carers. A book launch was held where participants were celebrated and many tears of pride and joy shed.
