Last Seen is a creative showcase, pairing vision-impaired Australians with renowned artists and composers to depict their last, or most cherished, visual memory. A partnership between the Queensland Eye Institute Foundation and Griffith University, it is a project like no other – it has the power to save sight.
Featuring the Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra and Choir with the Voices of Birralee, the Last Seen concert in April 2023 brought these powerful stories to life through music, art and short film. Conducted by Peter Morris, the repertoire debuts original and inspirational works from composers including Dr Ralph Hultgren AM, Tim Davies, Dr Jeff Usher, Paul Jarman and Dr Catherine Likhuta.
