At the heart of Second Echo are the artists who make and perform the work. Some live with disabilities and some do not. Our work is not simply about access or equality. We are about new ways of thinking and creating. Formed in 2005 the company has premiered twelve major works, toured in Australia and internationally and is a leading creative force in the development of a narrative that speaks to the rich diversity of Tasmania.
the core are our professional artists who lead SEE in creative practice, teaching, outreach and performance development, presentation and touring.
