The Forgotten Australians in Ballarat rallied to save the Ballarat Orphanage buildings and land from being developed, and forgotten, again.
These are people who were raised in government care institutions. They have many stories of love and despair. Yum Studio had been inovlved in the development of a new Australian Theatre work called 'Sanctuary', by Chris Dickins, about the Forgotten Australians. During its development we created a short doco on the story of Deborah Findlay.
It was Deborah who organsied the rally once she realised that the buildings that held her only childhood memories, was in danger of being kncoked down for development.
Yum Studio believed it was a cause worthy of support.
