A then and now film looking at the revitalisation of the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute over 15 years.
“Let knowledge grow from more to more.
But more of reverence in us dwell.
Til mind and soul according well.
May make one music as before.”
The Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute is a magnificent building that fell into disrepair over 150 years (established 1859). This short film by Yum Studio records its restoration period from 2000-2013.
Celebrating a decade of revitalisation.
