Aboriginal community members of all ages are invited to take part in a special project to create songs in palawa kani

Working with Dewayne Everettsmith, workshops will be held over the next two years to create songs based on the melodies and stories of our ancestors.  

We’ll be coming together to write songs about community, country, and culture. We’ll also arrange the music, record them, and perform them for the community. 

The first two workshops have been organised, and will be online, so anyone across lutruwita can join in.

Further sessions will be arranged, and we will publish the details on this page and share them through email and social media. 

 All ages are welcome.
