Fundraiser for Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation
Address: Bondi, NSW
Date: Thursday August 9th, 2012
The evening will feature
- The staging of the one act play by award-winning Australian playwright Justin Fleming Junction. In this compelling piece set against the backdrop of a dilapidated and deserted old signal box at a long disused railway junction, a couple look to the voices of the past to guide them into the future.
- The StoryLines art exhibition Voices & Visions featuring work by artists from Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation, including Uncle Cecil Bowden, and portraits from Sarah Barker’s exhibition ‘Let’s Face It’.
- Live music from Chris Edwards-Haines
- Audio installation by composer and sound designer Martin Jamieson
- Young Didgeridoo player Anthony Traecy, and the newly established dance team ‘the saints’
- An informal Q&A discussion with the creative team from Junction and representatives of the Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation. The purpose of the evening is to support the establishment of a ‘Belonging Place’; to raise awareness of the history and work of the corporation; and to open a dialogue, to learn, to listen to one another’s stories.
