Front Yard Slide Shows – Unley is a temporary site-based projection projection project that asks people to make a slideshow about the history of their house and the stories of those who have lived there, that are screened in their front yard at night.

Conceived by Paul Gazzola and created in partnership with the City of Unley as part of its Beyond the Gate initiative, the projects first iteration was presented as part of the 2023 SA History Festival. 7 slide shows were collaboratively created by local Unley residents working with lead artists.

All slideshows are now available online at

Front Yard Slide Shows generated local participation at a grass roots level, by focusing on people’s lives and the places where they live. It responded to a documented desire from residents to come together and connect with others in artistic activities that foster and enhance the local spirit of Unley.

We are currently seeking local participants from the Unley Council area to feature in the 2024 version of the project. If you would like to participate, please complete the form below.
