About – Student Reflections
"It's hugely important to think about this issue (Federation). As a generation it is important to consider our origins, historically what has happened to indigenous people and to include that point of view in the celebration of Federation.

"A sense of belonging is important to everyone. A project such as this gives you the chance to actually think about it and not only for yourself but in the broader context of society.

"We spend a lot of hours every day practising to perfect our playing. It's fantastic to be involved in a community project where we can use our skills to hopefully say something really positive.

"It's great to be working with such a broad range of people. We don't often get to work with dancers and poets. It's particularly exciting to be able to work with living composers. It really is a chance for us to branch out and do something we might not normally do.

"I hadn't really given Federation a lot of thought. However, this project has changed that. As a performer, I believe you need to understand what it is you are trying to say. In this instance I need to determine my thoughts about Federation, what it means and also think of the future."
