Storytelling Victoria has been sitting on the steering committee for this project alongside Community Music Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal Corporation for Languages.
The aim is to inspire songwriters, choirs and other community members to learn about, appreciate and celebrate Country. The driver for the project was the concern that 'Many Victorians are street-wise but not land-literate' and that music and songs can turn this around. Songs tell stories and sung together, can deepen love for land, knowledge and strengthen community.
Singing from Country is an ambitious notion. This video of the pilot project tells the story so far. Enjoy.
