Invy Horn Jam, Kyneton Street Band, Sunshine Street Band and Clonard College

Riffs and rhythm. Squeaks, shouts and smiles. Tunes blast out. The band moves as one (almost!) as they lead the parade. Or play on the street corner. Or as they rehearse together on a rainy Tuesday night in their local community hall. You know the feeling. Playing in a band, singing and making music with others is something special. Hearing the rhythm drift down the street always increases your heartbeat. And playing at a street band festival is simply thrilling!

Looking Into the Wonderland

Jacinta Leitch

"Looking into Wonderland” by Jacinta Leitch, explores the relationship that is conjured from the story telling of parents to their children, a walk amongst an imaginary world seeking adventure much like “Alice”. A cluster of 22 giant illuminated mushrooms float up from the ground accompanied by a soundtrack of a magical night forest, awakening the sense of discovery apparent whilst walking within my instillation. (No flashing or flickering lights will be used, making my site a safe zone for those who suffer from epilepsy or seizures).

Reflective Tape Art

East Side Crew and Blender Studios

Tape art is an artwork created with adhesive tape such as duct tape or packing tape. It developed from urban art in the 1960s, as an alternative to the widely spread use of spray cans in the urban art scene. For Geelong After Dark, young people working with the Youth Development Unit at The City of Greater Geelong and Blender Studios will use ‘reflective tape’ to complete a surprise mural in Police Lane (side of GPAC) come and watch the mural progress and guess what it might be.
