'On the Wings of a Godwit' is an immersive, online guided meditation of music, birdsong and spoken word that takes the listener on a journey from the continental shores of Australasia to the tundra of Siberia. We invite you, the listener, to become a migratory bird, overwintering between your summer homes, following a flyway path that has been travelled for thousands of years.

Stop, listen, breathe, and take flight with this meditative journey created by renowned Australian artist Kate Gorringe-Smith (The Overwinting Project) and award-winning musicians and soundscape designers the Bowerbird Collective, Simone Slattery (violin) and Anthony Albrecht (cello).

This project was amplified by Melbourne Fringe through the Ralph Mclean Microgrant program.
