Together, Ballaarat Quilters Inc., and the Museum of Australian Democracy at Eureka (M.A.D.E) launch a national quilters’ challenge for 2015.
The news release says,
The theme of the 2015 challenge is – ‘Songs of Freedom – Celebrating Democracy’. This theme is based on one of M.A.D.E’s permanent exhibits ‘The Power of Numbers’ which demonstrates the power voices using five different songs of protest. These songs are Nyurra Wurriyn, Freedom Train, Ode to Joy, Lean on Me and Then and Now (a new song commissioned last year by M.A.D.E to commemorate the 160th Anniversary of the Eureka Stockade).
The contest culminates in a Quilt Exhibition 19 Nov 2015 – 31 Jan 2016, at the M.A.D.E museum. The entry deadline is 21 Aug 2015, with quilts to be received by 6 Nov 2015.
