Seeking Human Kindness

By Katelyn Dudley

I'm fundraising to help end homelessness- a little kindness goes along way

My Name is Kate, and I am passionate about helping end homelessness here in South Australia. Everyone, just like you and I, deserves to have a safe and stable place to call home. 6,000 people such as men, women and families in South Australia are experiencing homelessness. 

Today I am here fundraising to support Hutt St Centre, which has been supporting people for more than 65 years by providing a hearty meal, and a hot shower, all in a safe, welcoming space.

I will be raising funds to support people experiencing homelessness, and ask today if you can show your kindness and donate what you can to the ones who need it most.

I’d be so grateful for your support and I know as a community we can help end homelessness.

Wednesday 31st Aug
Cianah Harris is an Adelaide-based harpist, playing in the styles of classical, jazz, and contemporary. She studied at the Elder Conservatorium of Music under the guidance of Liesl Warner, Carolyn Burgess, and Suzanne Handel. Awarded the Rosemary St. John Harp Scholarship, she was privileged to attend study in both London and Paris, receiving tutelage from harpists of the London Philharmonic  Orchestra, Paris Conservatoire, and world-renowned jazz and improvisation harpist Park Stickney. Upon returning to Adelaide, Cianah has played with several orchestras including the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Adelaide Concert Collective. Upon finishing her term as principal harp for the Adelaide Youth Orchestra, she now holds a principal position for the Adelaide Wind Orchestra. Cianah also enjoys playing with several local community orchestras. She has appeared alongside New York artist ''Earth Eater'', and has taken part in many recording projects in Adelaide, receiving a Governor's Award as a Cultural Ambassador. 

A keen lover of the stars, Cianahs next project is facilitating a concert under the stars in the newly founded International Dark Sky Reserve, with support from the Mid-Murray Council. She is currently composing a concert suite for harp and wind orchestra titled ''Under Dark Skies''. It explores our place in the universe, the cultural significance of the stars to the Kaurna People, and the impact of light pollution on sustainability and conservation. She aims to premiere it in 2024. Some excerpts from the suite have been additionally rewritten for a solo concert harp. Outside of a busy concert schedule, Cianah enjoys all things aviation, working in a busy funeral home, and nurturing a keen interest in further developing music as an integral role in palliative care.
