The Project

With the support of Bundanon Trust, celebrated poet and hip-hop artist SOLO and The Red Room Company's Artistic Director, Johanna Featherstone, hosted a special edition of our creative literacy program, Red Room Education, at the Bundanon Homestead. Students from Bomaderry High School, Shoalhaven High School and Vincentia High School will create new poems for The Disappearing, a free app that investigates things people, places and things that vanish before our very eyes.
