Powerhouse has partnered with ground-breaking production company Co-Curious (producers of critically acclaimed drama Here Out West), to showcase and celebrate the stories of Western Sydney. Powerhouse has commissioned Co-Curious to develop five connected 20-minute films (to be viewed as one work) using Co-Curious’ unique model of development and production, which supports writers to bring stories to life with their own sense of authenticity.
