Small Voices Louder

SVL_AW_014-by-Ben-Landau_edit-1200x382-c.jpg

In October 2018 a group of children participated in Small Voices Louder where they were asked to follow ribbons and sit or lie in little exhibition tents decorated to inspire their imaginations.  The participating children were then asked their opinions about some of the bigger issues in life, such as:

  • What do you worry about?

  • What do you hope for the future?

  • How are adults different to children?

  • How would you change the world for the better?

  • What is love?

 

This project is all about helping adults really hear children’s point of view.  The children’s answers were recorded and short 3 to 4 minute sound scapes have been created to reflect the views of children across WA, from Broome to Albany, including Karratha.

To learn more about the project, please go to the following link: https://vimeo.com/99899678

These sound scapes are going to be exhibited at the 2Hot Festival for Young People at the Red Earth Arts Precinct from 21st June until 1st July 2019. To help bring the sound scapes to life, we are inviting children to design and make “feel boxes” and “peep boxes” to accompany each sound scape.  These boxes will help bring the exhibition to life and provide both visual and tactile points of engagement for listeners.

 

1st Workshop – Saturday 16th March 10am-12pm

  • Listening to recorded sound scapes from Small Voices Louder

  • Gathering ideas and planning designs of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

2nd Workshop – Saturday 6th April 9am-12pm

  • Designing and beginning to construct “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

3rd Workshop – Saturday 4th May 9am-12pm

  • Finalising construction of “feel boxes” and “peep boxes”.

 

These three sessions are held with local artists Michelle Lucev and Megan Wood-Hill in the Red Earth Arts Precinct Rehearsal room.

If your child/children are able to attend, please register via email boxoffice@redearthartsprecinct.com.au or call into the Box Office from 9am-5pm weekdays.

Dan Sultan - Aviary Takes Tour

The Music presents

DAN SULTAN

Aviary Takes Tour

2018 has been a year of transition for Dan Sultan. Having taken 6 months off and out of the spotlight to recalibrate and steady the ship, he is now ready to take on a whole bunch of new, exciting and fresh challenges.

The first project to see the light of day in 2019 will be the aptly titled ‘AVIARY TAKES’, a collection of older, existing back catalogue songs and a smattering of new tracks including a couple of out-of-the-blue covers and fresh tunes stripped back and all recorded in ‘one vocal take’ at The Aviary Studio’s in inner city Melbourne.

The AVIARY TAKES collection will be released early in 2019 and to celebrate its release, Sultan will head back out on the road armed with a guitar, a keyboard and a fresh batch of anecdotes and bad ‘dad’ jokes!

The tour run sees Dan traverse the country in regional areas that he is both familiar and not so familiar with. 

Says Sultan; “I’m really looking forward to hitting the regional road with ‘The Aviary Takes’ tour. It’ll be good to make up for the shows I had to cancel earlier this year. ‘The Aviary Takes’ are a group of songs I recorded recently and they include old, current, new tracks with a couple of surprise covers thrown in. It’ll be great to see all of your lovely faces at the shows”.
