Deborah Cheetham AO | Radical Voice #5
The Art of Belonging
Wednesday 20 September 2017 | 5.30-7.00pm
Renowned Aboriginal Australian soprano, composer and educator Deborah Cheetham AO presents the next installment of the Radical Voice Talk Series on ‘The Art of Belonging’.
“For Indigenous Australians, the Arts are the most powerful way we can know and give meaning to the world around us. For thousands of generations we have passed on all knowledge of geography, the sciences, medicine and humanity through visual and performing arts. The Arts have never been a luxury, rather a necessity. Our culture is our knowledge. Our knowledge is our survival. It is The Art of Belonging and it is for everyone.” says Deborah Cheetham AO.
As part of Deborah’s visit to the region, 30 students from Eden, Narooma and Bermagui primary schools will take part in a three-day Short Black Opera workshop at Four Winds led by Deborah Cheetham and pianist, Toni Lalich. Together the group will develop their own singing and song writing practices, work on the art of storytelling and take part in visual arts activities with local Yuin artists.
Presented by Four Winds and Short Black Opera.

One of Australia’s great jazz pianists/composers and his multi-award-winning quintet (including ex-Tilba guitarist Carl Morgan) launch their new album, ‘Hearing the Blood’, at the Windsong Pavilion.
“(McAll’s) ability to craft memorable themes is matched by a feel for the atmospheric… Now established on the intensely competitive New York jazz scene, he plays here with some of the city’s leading musicians. His music is utterly contemporary, McAll demonstrating throughout that he is a talented composer as well as gifted keyboardist” Rolling Stone Magazine
