Museums & Galleries National Award for Interpretation, Learning & Audience Engagement, Level 2

Prize

Description

Award for the "Sound from the Ground" project, undertaken while Artist in Residence at the National Trust of Western Australia.

"A complex and multi-layered project which unearths much early WA colonial history through the gravesites. The innovation displayed by the musicians in undertaking research, composing music, threading old musical scores and then producing a quality performance night shows a commitment to excellence and innovation in this new National Trust environment. The filming, tv exposure, blogging and very professional program ensures the project is well documented and hopefully the music will be used again in some other context. An impressive and original public program to enhance and promote the stories associated with an unusual collection."
