I believe Sarah is an excellent example of the ways in which arts practitioners can effectively and creatively consolidate cultural heritage and responsibly produce creative futures. - Dr Jondi Keane.
‘I saw Sounds from the Emergent State at the State Library and it was rad. I found a spot where I could have a 270 degree view and look left-right and see it all twisting. I really enjoyed the experience and the story told. Watched it all twice. I now only want to watch documentaries with 5 screens at once! Thanks for putting it together, really enjoyed!’ – Kane Casson.
