The nature of rural life has seen dramatic change with small farms under pressure from shifting markets and expanding agribusiness. People relocate, knowledge is dispersed, customs change, and ritual is lost, yet sheds remain; an integral piece of the rural landscape.
Farms are dotted with handmade buildings – some tin, some slab built in timber. Big hART, Australia’s leading arts and social change company, brings together farming families and composers, musicians, sound designers and visual artists to explore the stories of these resilient spaces and respond to their shifting existence.
Take a journey through Tasmania’s North West Coast and experience the world premiere of works from award-winning composers presented in the locations that inspired them, celebrating the endurance of these working buildings and the landscapes to which they belong.
Embark on a 5-shed touring experience over 32kms starting in Wynyard at 10am or 11.30am;
Pick and choose your own experience by arriving at your chosen shed/s for any of the allotted performance times. For full details, see the website.
