    Project Description

    Images of Home: Children's Creative Response to the Changing Landscape of Officer (Images of Home) is a Community Cultural Development (CCD) research project involving young people from Officer Primary School, with Cardinia Shire Council, CCD sound artists and researchers from Monash University Gippsland Campus and the Centre for Cultural Partnerships at the University of Melbourne. It is a pilot project designed to engage young people living in growth corridors in Victoria to explore social connection and the meaning of 'home' in a rapidly changing environment. Using state of the art sound capture technology, participants will be encouraged to 'capture' and then play with the sounds of their environment to explore their aural connection to their landscape. In this way they will map out their social connection through soundlines, and 'recapture' their own sense of home in a rapidly changing environment. The project will run across two years, with each year culminating in an 'exhibition' of their sound explorations plus photos, curated by the young participants themselves with CCD artist Dr Ros Bandt.
