Notes The exhibition in Townsville's Emerge Gallery unpacked these stories into a new setting, showcasing a unique model of participatory media used in this cultural and geographic setting. This resulted in participatory video and photographic works that materially embody the production of these new forms of knowledge. Traditional stories of everyday life in this community were re-mediated through the process of participatory media, generating new and creative outcomes that include: methodologies and understandings of Dusun culture, language and history; and ways of effectively disseminating previously hidden Sabahan culture, language and history.
