Jacqueline came on board in term 3 of 2017 after delivering workshops as an external facilitator at the Willagee Library. She has been involved in youth programs at the Willagee Library and Willagee Community Centre both as a staff member with the City and as a facilitator of her Camera Story workshops.

Camera Story has been involved in communities across both local and regional Western Australia and also internationally in India. Each project is unique to the context of the communities they work within, but Camera Story always has a strong focus on community minded approaches and the resulting works always reflect strong community values.
