FAC brings Indigenous artists’ voices to the community

Wednesday 1 July 2020

As part of its commitment to sharing the voices of the nation’s first people, The Frankston Arts Centre will livestream A Musical Reconciliation by Spirit Lines on Thursday 9 July.

Spirit Lines features Indigenous Australian Mutti Mutti singer and songwriter Uncle Kutcha Edwards, three-time Latin Grammy guitarist Daniel Jauregui and Anglo-Brazilian percussionist and scholar Adrian Hearn.

Their musical collaboration explores the reconciliation of ancestral lines in the spirit of hope.

Music lovers are in for a treat, as A Musical Reconciliation will be livestreamed for free, via YouTube and the FAC’s Facebook page.

Frankston City Council Mayor, Sandra Mayer, encouraged the community to join her and watch the show from the comfort of their homes.

“It is wonderful that the Arts Centre has made this inspiring act available to the community,” Cr Mayer said.

“Music is one of my passions and I’m looking forward to tuning in for a great performance which shares a very important reconciliation message.”

Uncle Kutcha Edwards described the Spirit Lines creation as being “like dropping a pebble,” – a small contribution with tremendous ripples.

A Musical Reconciliation is the third event in the FAC Digital Series, which has made performing arts accessible to the community while COVID-19 restrictions are in place.

If you need to visit Frankston, why not wander by the FAC between now and 2 August to see The Black and White Series by Indigenous multimedia artist, Josh Muir, from the street front?

The Glass Cube at Cube 37 Gallery is proudly welcoming the works from MARS Gallery, which are inspired by street art and Hip-hop and produced by printing panels on metal.

“I am a proud Yorta Yorta/Gunditjmara man, I hold my culture strong to my heart and it gives me a voice and great sense of my identity,” Mr Muir said.

“I look around I see empires built on aboriginal land; I cannot physically change or shift this, though I can make the most of my culture in a contemporary setting and my art projects reflect my journey.”
