A Nillumbik 'Artist in Own Residence' Program

The Nillumbik Community have tempered trying circumstances throughout the history of the Shire, be it from recurrent bushfires, floods and now the grip of COVID. Residents have proven themselves resilient, resourceful and supportive of one another.

Seeking to celebrate community, ‘Sculpted Voices’ by multidisciplinary artist Aiv Puglielli examines our post-pandemic embrace of digital infrastructure by mass collation of individual voices direct from the devices of Nillumbik residents over virtual channels into a conceptual composition. Voices contributed to the project will be arranged in sonic collage to culminate in an online audio streaming release.

Have a think to yourself: What do I remember most vividly of life in Nillumbik during these times? What has helped me overcome personal obstacles? What has given me hope?

All responses are welcome - we experience life in all shades.
