We are delighted to announce that Sadie Harrison has received a second Arts Council England Artist’s Development Grant. The 2016-2017 award will support her work as the first Composer-in-Residence to the Kunstler Bei Wu Sculpture Park, Wessenberg, Berlin.

Sadie will be writing new works for the Park’s Ensemble-in-Residence, including a piece for the Inauguration of the Indigenous Australian Art Gallery in June 2017 in collaboration with the German and Australian Ministries of Culture. Other works include a string orchestra piece to be used as the Park’s ’theme music’, a set of chamber pieces in the style of Weimar Cabaret and an extensive set of solo works to be performed outside amongst the sculptures.
