Abbotsford Convent – A Sense of Place is a short film documenting the history of what is now the Abbotsford Convent Arts and Culture Precinct; providing insight into the Convent’s rare combination of heritage, history, culture and landscape.
The film explores the meaning of the place, including indigenous views, the Sisters of the Good Shepherd, the seven year community campaign and now as it is developing into being one of Australia’s premier arts and cultural communities.
The Abbotsford Convent site once all but closed to the people of Melbourne, has inspired the community to fight for it’s ongoing preservation and is now open for all to enjoy.
