We revel in an ambitious idea and have set about collecting the live music history of the musically alive Mornington Peninsula.
Documenting stories of live music and place:
History adorns us with fascinating stories of beach culture, food, war, farming, maritime tales and even popular music. Yet little is recorded about the experience of live music – the action it has inspired, the significant moments celebrated, the ways it has deeply changed people.
SWELL will include a new series of interactive installations and performances designed to present and collect stories of live music history.
How you can participate:
Listen to rich historical storytelling by way of live performance lectures and recorded interviews. Share live music stories via our Confession Booths and vintage typewriter stations.
+ Visit our live music history tunnel at Fort Nepean from 2PM on 22 and 23 April 2017.
Open to SWELL ticket holders and general park visitors.
+ Keep an eye on our website from June 2017 for live music stories collected at Swell.
Or write to us here for updates.
+ Submit a live music story before 13 April 2017 here.
Select contributions will feature in our live music history tunnel.
SWELL is an independent project supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
