Sydney Speaks 2017

In 2017 Catherine Travis, Cale Johnstone and James Grama, in collaboration with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, created the first Sydney Speaks App which formed part of the ‘This is a Voice’ exhibit that ran at the Powerhouse Museum from 11 August 2017 – 28 January 2018, and was then available online up till 2020. This interactive app for testing perceptions of Australian English Speakers is no longer available, and has been replaced with the Australia Speaks App.
