The Apology to the Stolen Generations in 2008 was a landmark year for Indigenous people.
While the Apology brought the Stolen Generations of the past firmly into the present national consciousness, next steps are to reverse the current trends, where children are still being removed in large numbers. Indigenous voices, from such organisations as National Congress, are more and more loudly demanding that they be consulted and made responsible for decisions about their own lives and futures.
Nu Day looks at each month of 2008 in a series of piano works, reflecting on the past, celebrating the present, and looking towards a positive future.
Nominated for Performance of the Year in the 2017 Art Music Awards, pianist David Laughton performs selections for the official launch of the CD recording of Dindy Vaughan’s “Nu Day 2008 – Twelve Piano Pieces for the Year of the Apology”.
