Every part of Australia is, always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. As a community gathering-place, a festival of arts, cultural exchange and celebration and as a site for the sharing of ideas and stories, Ten Days on the Island pays respect to the palawa – original owners and cultural custodians - of all the lands and waters across lutruwita (Tasmania) upon which our Festival takes place.

On The Road With The Corricks

Presentation and Q&A delivered by NFSA curator, Jillian Mackenzie

60 mins

The Corrick family of musicians, orators, singers and picture show presenters, toured Australia from 1901 – 1914.

The Corrick family of musicians, orators, singers and picture show presenters, toured Australia from 1901 – 1914. NFSA Curator and Corrick film specialist, Jill Mackenzie, will introduce you to the family, and through the NFSA collection, illustrate their talents and their travels. You’ll hear clips from Oral History and recital recordings and see some of the fantastic special effects films (now digitally restored and included in the Ten Days on the Island program) as a sample of the broader collection donated to the NFSA by John Corrick (Leonard’s son) and now supervised by Leonard’s grandson, Stewart Corrick.
