Welcome to the Lullaby Project Australia:
Songs to build a better world.
Originating in New York, the Lullaby Project sees pregnant women and new mothers and fathers collaborate with professional artists, as they write and sing personal lullabies for their babies. Supporting the social and emotional health and wellbeing of new parents, the project now reaches parents in healthcare settings, homeless shelters, high schools, foster care, and correctional facilities across the world.
Lullaby Project Australia was established in 2019 by Connecting the Dots in Music through an international partnership with Carnegie Hall, New York. The first ever Australian projects took place across the City of Onkaparinga in South Australia, developed by a team of community and government partners who collectively acknowledge the power of music to improve the lives of individuals and communities.
Beyond the pilot period, the program sits within an ongoing strategy to provide creative opportunities to strengthen family connection, support mental health and wellbeing, and increase access to quality music education from the earliest years of life. With support of SA Department of Human Services in 2020, Connecting the Dots in Music led community consultation and program development, and was awarded a 2020 Arts SA Ruby Award for Best Regional or Community Project. With new funding from Arts SA, we are launching a suite of new Lullaby programs, resources and initiatives with a goal to inspire and encourage parents right across Australia to sing and create new lullabies for their babies.
