FOR OUR FREEDOM: COLLABORATIVE EXHIBITION
18 September – 1 October 2019
This audio/visual installation combines indigenous storytelling, poetry written by asylum seekers, an original music score and video projections into an immersive experience to explore a narrative of cultural identity in Australia. Each piece of work broadcasts the voices of people from different backgrounds – their cultural struggle, traumatic pasts and uncertain futures – and carries a message of hope and sense of belonging to this country. This installation is presented as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2019.
