Miitu Palti was the first of Lullaby Project to be established in Australia, built through a large-scale partnership with cross sector collaborators across the City of Onkaparinga Region in South Australia. The program was simultaneously piloted at four venues including Hackham West Community Centre, Taikurrendi Children's Centre, Christie's Beach High School, and O'Sullivan Beach Children's Centre.
Following a six week workshop period, the project culminated in a highly moving and joyous community celebration concert at Hopgood Theatre Noarlunga. 25 newly composed lullabies were released into the world, performed by parent song-writers alongside internationally acclaimed ensembles Zephyr Quartet, Aurora Vocal Ensemble and a team of world-class Teaching Artists.
The project has been widely acknowledged, receiving recognition from organisations including the Government of South Australia and Carnegie Hall.
