    In the earlier stage of this project, Frances Larder explained: 
“Echoes from the Past”
    My name is Frances Larder.
    I am a committee member of D.A.C.C.
    I am of Dutch descent but was born in Dutch-East India, as it was called before the war.
    My parents and their 4 children arrived in Australia, after the war, like so many other war torn families.
    I obtained a degree in visual arts and for quite a number of years I participated in solo and group exhibitions both in Australia and overseas.
    “Echoes from the past” will consist of the following elements:
    ▪ Two wall hangings (showing the maps of the Netherlands depicting before and after reclamation).
    ▪ A marionette stage and marionettes depicting the costumes of each regions
    ▪ The history and traditional celebration of Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet
    ▪ Miniature furniture to highlight how people lived in the early 1900s
    ▪ Indonesian Wayang puppets highlighting the strong connection the Dutch had with the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia our closest Asian
    ▪ Indonesian batik traditions showing the link between the Dutch and Indonesian cultures
    ▪ Video and dvd- telling some of the history, music, and dancing
    ▪ A showcase displaying spare marionettes
The proposed project will only be able to proceed with the help of the volunteers and sufficient funding must be made available to bring it to fruition.
    Frances Larder.
