The Ballarat Arts Academy and The BallaRat Pack Orchestra, together with the Word of Mouth Chorus, have created a powerful message in support of the marriage equality campaign.

Filmed at Ballarat Mechanics Institute and featuring students from Federation University, the moving rendition of Louis Armstrong’s ‘What a Wonderful World’ is described by its creators as an ‘epic musical statement of love and support for Marriage Equality and the Yes campaign’ and a creative, collective response from the staff and students of Ballarat Arts Academy.
