The theme of non/FICTION for West Projections Festival for 2018 invites artists to respond to forms of communication and translation using projection. As a diverse and eclectic community, Footscray, West Footscray and Seddon provides the ideal platform to explore these ideas.

non/FICTION defines the translucent parameters and hazy borders of communication, language and interpretation. In an age of accessible and instant technology, we are all writers, photographers and reporters, disseminating information at an accelerated rate to a global audience. Pop-culture and consumerism endlessly occupy our screens and streets providing blurry realities. How do we filter between fact and fiction? Who benefits and who suffers from this information? 

West Projections Festival invites viewers to Contemplate Talk and Engage and to consider the present and future forms of transmission and understanding.
