Jeanti St Clair tells stories through audio, both as documentaries and audio walks, and describes herself as a story-catcher. She lives in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales and is a lecturer at Southern Cross University in Lismore, Australia, where she teaches media and journalism. She is a PhD candidate at the University of Wollongong researching immersive audio walk sound design and is also an associate producer with audio walk company, Soundtrails.
Jeanti created the Lismore Flood Stories project, originally to document the 2017 flood. However, in light of events this year, she has now opened the website to become a portal for all Lismore flood documentation projects with the aim that community, researchers, media and policymakers can better understand the impact of climate disasters on regional communities. She is currently also collaborating with photographer Raimond De Weerdt, documenting the stories of civilian rescuers who saved so many lives during the 2022 flood on February 28.
