Artists in Motion was commissioned to bring the Stockman's Hall of Fame into the 21st century by engaging its current audience and attracting new visitors while  staying true to its mission

The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame is an Aussie icon, known also as the “Opera House of the Outback”. Inside, the Centre’s five themed galleries display the history behind some of Australia’s greatest and bravest explorers, stock workers, pastoralists, and First Nations' people. As part of the museum’s renovations, AIM was asked to create an immersive theatre space consisting of an 18-metre wide screen that takes the audience on a 20-minute immersive journey through the history of the Australian agricultural industry and the men and women who helped shape it. A rich narrative told through the voice of an Aussie stockman, we see the first arrival of Merino sheep, the development of the Waler Horse breed from World War 1, the challenges, triumphs and developments for Indigenous Stockmen and the continuous technical advancements seen in today’s farming practices.
