Kylie Earl and Charlotte Rees are collaborating across their disciplines of sound, music and fabric design.

Inspired by the many voices that came together in 1912, using the Bread and Roses poem to link their art disciplines. By collecting oral histories and poems, lyrics and spoken word of local elderly and young people, they will weave together sounds and patterns in special sound scape for the Centennial.

Dan Benson’s installation theatrically spills out from the studio and into the street. His inspiration comes from the unique landscape of the cotton fields and the vast difference of scale between the large fields and the workers within them. The series of lines represent the never-ending rows of cotton to be picked.

During the opening studios, visitors can follow the lines of cotton to discover more about the lives of the cotton pickers and the conditions they lived with before the strikes.
