We know it's been an interesting year.
We're collecting dedications and songs for people you've been thinking about.
In their presence or absence.


In the lead up to the 2021 Fremantle Biennale, an international hotline for dedications and song requests will be open by artist and choreographer Amrita Hepi.

Taking cue's from Noongar Radio's popular radio show Inside Out, the hotline invites you to leave a dedication, a message or a song, to a loved one you haven't seen due to the nature of confinement.


Collected dedications will be used by the artist in the premiere of a new dance and sound work for the Fremantle Biennale this November.
