The MAD Random Acts concept has been growing collectively and creatively from the ashes of the 2019/2020 Black Summer Fires that devastated our beautiful natural environments and town.

It has been such a random year, one in which it has been impossible to plan commemorative activities or an arts festival with any certainty. And so we embrace the randomness, the fleeting beauty, the ephemeral nature of life in this, our first, collection of Mallacoota and District (MAD) Random Acts. 

This website is a place where we gather, support, share and grow the vast talents, potential and stories from our community.

It is also a place to check the latest events and happenings across Mallacoota and District. 

Please join us in a Random Act. Strum, compose, film, write, weave, paint, sculpt or sing. Or be a year-round contributor to our Living Film. 

To find out how to engage explore our MAD Contributor page.

Check out the commemoration film below – One Year On, produced and directed by The Sanctuary’s media mentor Kristin Rule and animations by youth leader Airly Embleton-Mew.

Thank you to everyone involved in getting us through 2020
