Ballarat Railway Theatrical Audio Tours 2011/12

Ballarat Heritage Weekend 2011 & 2012 offered the specially crafted experience of Ballarat Railway Station Theatrical Audio Tours, created by Weave Length artists and presented by Amy Tsilemanis for the La Trobe University Theatre & Drama program.

Old buildings, like the human mind, contain overlayed maplines of memories, dreams, thoughts and journeys. This auditory ipod tour leads individuals on a journey through time and the many lives of the historic precinct.
A woven soundscape of instruction, site history, song, story, and contemplation guides participants throughout the station, meeting some colourful characters along the way.

When: May 7th & 8th, between 11am and 5pm
Where: Be welcomed and collect ipod at The Coach House (a valid credit card or license will be required in exchange for ipod)
202 Lydiard St Nth, Ballarat
