Following the 2018 regional tour of Small Voices Louder (Part 1) and the dissemination of the soundtracks via radio and podcast (Part 2), Performing Lines WA commissioned local artists in Karratha, Albany, Esperance and Broome to create visual response works for Part 3.
In consultation with Maybe ( ) Together’s Alex Desebrock, each local artist worked on their own interpretation of the soundtracks with local children to create a series of installations, events and video animation. This process provides another layer of ownership of the project and extends the Small Voices Louder story in these communities.
“I have loved seeing how the different artists have responded. Each has listened deeply and responded with or for their community of children. They have used the knowledge and skills to find the best opportunity (which we would never know about!) and also has allowed the work to be more than a “tour” which is what I’ve always wanted.” says Alex Desebrock
“The ripple effects of these children’s words makes me so excited. Like the times we’re in now, children’s voices are rising.”
