A Fluorescent Feeling by Georgia Mill, Michelle Macklem and Beth Atkinson-Quinton
Over Three million Australians live with chronic pain. Being in pain can be lonely, boring, scary and frustrating. But what if it could also be beautiful, colourful and textual? What if we could share it with others?
A Fluorescent Feeling encourages listeners to look at pain differently: asking questions about how we might record pain in new ways, how pain intersects with power and how pain and intimacy are related.
A Fluorescent Feeling is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
Producers: Georgia Mill, Michelle Macklem and Beth Atkinson-Quinton and the Broadwave Team
