The Bass Coast community is invited to take a sneak peak at Bass Coast’s "Peoplescape" people at an exhibition at the Wonthaggi Town Hall Foyer on Thursday 4 October at 11am.

The 15 life size replicas of local heroes have been created by local people and will soon be heading up to Canberra to form part of the national Peoplescape project and be displayed on the slopes of Parliament House and on the lawns of Federation Mall.

The Peoplescape project is part of the Centenary of Federation celebrations. Nominations were invited from across Australia in February and 5,000 were selected, including 15 from the Bass Coast community.

The successful nominees were sent a life size person-shaped cut-out to decorate, using whatever methods and materials best signifies the personality and achievements of the person they nominated.

These life-size figures, representing ordinary Australians, will stand in rows covering the expansive lawns over and around Parliament House in Canberra. The public will be able to view the exhibition in Canberra from 25 November to 4 December 2001.

However, the Bass Coast community can get in early and check out their local heroes at the Peoplescape exhibition on Thursday 4 October, 11am, at the Wonthaggi Town Hall Foyer.

More information is available at www.peoplescape.com.au, including the stories of the successful nominations.
