Sound FX 2022

Tura’s program Sound FX explores music, story, cultural knowledge, and language through long term collaborations with education and community partners in the Fitzroy Valley.

Facilitated by award-winning community music composer, researcher and educator Dr Gillian Howell, this program aims to strengthen and diversify the ways that music-making can support community goals around language knowledge, wellbeing, and healing. In its fifth year, Sound FX celebrates and facilitates the creation of new music with collaboration at the core of the program.

These creative collaborations support the revitalisation of local Aboriginal languages whilst developing new cultural works for performance, education and wider distribution, and create new opportunities for community members to develop their music skills and make music together in diverse ways.

Our team will be in the Fitzroy Valley this August and October over the following dates:
August 15 – September 2
October 2 – October 30
