After a year that brought many challenges and experiences of prolonged isolation, we recognise the vital role that music can play in community recovery, connection and positivity.
Through a community grant from Australian Neighbourhood Houses & Centres Association, we delivered a brand new project for parents of babies in Hackham West and surrounding communities that focussed on building a strong community of connected families in the area.
Parents of babies came together across a series of three songwriting sessions to create, record and perform a personal lullaby. Hush, Hush, was co-written as a gift for all babies and carers in the community.
