Sounding histories: facilitating The Seafarer’s Mission transition from a service facility into a living museum

Melbourne’s Mission to Seafarer’s (MTS) with its
distinctive heritage architecture, is part of an international organisation
supporting the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of 1.5 million
seafarers and maintains a deep connection to the art and culture of maritime
activities. In 2017, MTS will transform its site, and its cultural legacy, by
introducing a curated live art project. Working across the disciplines of
history, performance and architecture, seven leading Australian artists will
activate the transition from a “mission” into a living museum, inviting
audiences to experience historical, archival material that provide new and
expanded forms of public engagement. This shift from a place of refuge and
memorabilia to rethinking assorted contexts of space, time and history will
be demonstrated by a professional exhibition, research publication and
documentary video.
