THE REMNANT – Keith Armstrong, Leah Barclay and collaborators

In a consultation with local groups, THE REMNANT project brings forth those things that remain of earlier local ecological systems. In meditating on these remains from the past, the project allows us to also conceive ideas for how current landscapes and environments might function in the future.  Participate as part of the Festival of Lights – Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th – 1pm – meet at the Band Rotunda.

Leah Barclay has been recognised as one of the most promising Australian composers of her generation. Since graduating from the Queensland Conservatorium, she has performed, published and produced commissioned works across Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Europe, India and Korea. Her dynamic work has resulted in numerous awards, including the 2009 Asialink Performing Artist Residency at Art Centre Nabi in Seoul, South Korea and the inaugural Premier of Queensland’s National New Media Art Scholarship.
