Mission Songs Project
8 Villiers Street, Grafton, NSW, 2460, Australia
3rd August 2018
Mission Songs Project is an initiative to revive contemporary Australian Indigenous songs from 1900 to 1999, focusing on the Christian missions, state run settlements and native camps where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were relocated. Searching for the secular songs that were sung after church, Mission Songs Project looks to explore the day to day life of the mission days, from cultural identity to love and loss. These unique songs consist of almost forgotten stories that shed light into the history of Indigenous elders, families and communities. Presented in association with Musica Viva Australia.
