The Logan Project charts the journey of the city's aspiring singers and musicians as they work together to create a new, positive narrative for their city.
Logan, Queensland has had a reputation for doing it tough, with high unemployment and sensationalised reports of racial tensions between Aboriginal, Pacific Islander and African residents.
But the melting-pot of over 200 ethnic groups is determined to turn things around. Drawing from the community’s immense pool of diverse talent, the Queensland Music Festival set the ambitious task of holding an epic musical created by the community, for the community – in front of a crowd of thousands.
The Logan Project is an inspiring two-part documentary charting the journey of Logan’s aspiring singers and musicians as they work together to create a new, positive narrative for their city.
Under the guidance of legendary jazz musician James Morrison, follow the community through the trials and triumphs of putting together one of the largest community musicals ever staged. Meet Logan locals with often heartbreaking stories, as they work to rise above hardship and smash stereotypes.
An SBS original documentary, The Logan Project celebrates the healing power of music to overcome adversity – both for individuals and an entire city.
