Dance artist Linda Luke and film maker Martin Fox conducted workshops between June and September 2012 to work with local Narrandera residents aged over 70 to create a dance film about the poetics of the older body. The workshops culminated in a film shoot week in September to create the short film Dance Diaries: Home.
The dance film had a screening in 2013 with music composed by The Cad Factory's Vic McEwan.
