Living Learning Australia (LLA) is the vision of director Andrew McSweeney. Andrew is a singer/songwriter, bass player, guitarist and pianist who has been performing and recording his music for over 20 years. Andrew established LLA in 1999.
LLA operates through the philosophy that music plays a vital key in self-expression and self-understanding. While the business deals in music and related services, in 2011 the company grew to deliver programs and services in permaculture and environmental design that encourages community development.
Under the banner of Living Music, LLA has developed long-term partnerships with The Victorian Department of Human Services (Youth Justice) to run community programs, permaculture workshops, mindfulness experiences and self-development programs.
LLA strives to give disadvantaged youth the opportunity to develop skills as a means of creating pathways, connections and opportunities to assist with social inclusion, social connectedness, healing, recovery and change.
