A new space for music in Sydney Harbour.

Cockatoo Calling – is a creative development and residency space for music, rather like a research and development hub dedicated to Australian musicians and composers. It aims to inspire, create new opportunities for collaborations, skills development and presentation. It is a place to explore, experiment and experience. We will be presenting performances, talks and workshops, plus an opportunity to catch some sounds from the residencies.
“Cockatoo island inspires with its extraordinary ambience. Join us on our musical adventures.” Joanne Kee, Project Director
