Loving Australia - Art, Photography & Music

Australia is a stunningly beautiful, entirely unique land and Australians are free to value their home because we live in a democracy and we can and do share an appreciation of that beauty. 

 

As we build our plan for Australia Together over the years, it will be inspirational if we are able to remind ourselves of what it is we love about Australia and what we want to keep.

At ACFP, we hope that art, photography and music will play a big part in that. ​

 

Photography, video and music composition on this site are by Bronwyn and David Kelly.

ACFP commits to working to promote Makarrata - the coming together after a struggle - through all drafts of Australia Together, Australia's first integrated, long term, community futures plan. To participate in building Australia Together click here.

Click here to watch, "'My Country' in song" - Dorothea MacKellar's iconic poem set to music by ACFP's Founder, Bronwyn Kelly.

"My Country" was first published in 1908 under the title "Core of My Heart". Over 100 years later, in 2017, another profound statement of heartfelt connection to country was published in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. This setting of Dorothea's poem to music is dedicated to the possibility that as we read and cherish the one, so may we read and cherish the other.
