With 646 entries from over 100 schools in the running, 30 Year 9 St George’s students collaboratively worked
together to top the 2019 Group Entry Competition by scooping First place at the 2019 COBIS International
Students created pieces in aide of the Reverberation project, defined as the work of using sculptures as
instruments for collaborative communication and creation, which included designs, large drawings and
sculptures in Art, as well as having produced audio collaborations in Music lessons. Specifically, audio
that plays through small-concealed speakers within a sculpture. The speakers also relay poems and other
audio files sent or transmitted by students in other participating schools in the Reverberation network.
News follows on from Sasha’s First prize in the 2018 COBIS International Art Prize competition.
To keep the project alive, 75 St George’s Year 12 students will participate in a site specific performance
and installation of the Reverberation project at St Paul’s Church in Rome in May 2019.
The plan is to work with some of the asylum seekers who attend the nearby Joel Nafuma refugee centre, many of whom are
talented musicians and artists.
