Such exciting news to share – we have received Major Federal Funding for a National Tour of the exhibition ‘Dancing in Fetters: the culture of convict dance’, based on doctoral research undertaken by Dr Heather Blasdale Clarke. Funding of $129,465 by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia programme enables the exhibition to tour nationally from late 2021 through to 2024 to seven museums! There will be a mix of public programming including concerts, workshops, and education pack and interactive videos.
Contact Dr Clarke on 07 3289 4708, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further comment or interview. Exhibition partners include Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology and Bush Traditions. Please keep up to date on the tour with our Instagram account @dancinginfetterstour
We wish to acknowledge the traditional lands across which the tour takes place, and recognise the importance of music and dance in the First Nation culture.
