Mission celebrates 100th

Mission celebrates 100th Image

Sounding Histories, with its music performances and artworks, marked the Mission to Seafarers’ 100th birthday on September 11.

The heritage-listed building on Flinders St was established on September 11, 1917 and has been the home away from home for the thousands of seafarers who visit the Port of Melbourne each year.

A joint initiative with Deakin University and created by Anne Wilson and Cameron Bishop, Sounding Histories incorporated a variety of performances, installations, sound and participation.

Artists who joined the celebration included Maree Clark, who crafted the River Reed Canoe, Catherine Bell, who created the “Seafarer Sex” with 26 mugs each telling the story of a female seafarer, Michael Needham with his anchor and rock sculptures, Michael Graeve with his acoustic performance and the iconic Painters and Dockers band.

A large crowd showed up at Sounding Histories to join the big party for the historic building and its stories.
