In early 2014, musician and community artist Rose Turtle Ertler interviewed eight local residents aged over 70, using questions dreamed up by a group of music students from Euroa Secondary College.
The resulting narratives were edited and played back to the students. Rose then returned to town to work with the students on their own original songs, each one inspired by one of the elder’s stories. The stories also inspired a suite of original prints by a year ten art class from the College.
Local documentary film maker, Bruce Cummings, captured aspects of the project from its outset and produced a separate ‘making of’ film complementing the musical narrative.
If you have questions about the project please call Community Development at Strathbogie Shire – tel 5795 0000.
