“Music is the language of all cultures”.
The proposal is for a destination concert hall that holds concerts from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. With an ethos of sustainability of land and culture at its core, the project grew into a place where the farming of Indigenous plants alongside educational music and arts programs would occur.
