Fancy hearing sounds from a 5 metre slide guitar constructed and played by local slide guitar virtuoso Tim Hulsman? Lend Wendy Grose your ears as she sings Opera from the Geelong Library & Heritage Centre: question is, will you see her as she does?
In a post-Christchurch world, the work of Rose Ertler and Complimentary Lane project located in the forecourt of Barwon Water, adds potency and spirit. It will have you sharing compliments of your own as you watch contributions from Matthew Flinders Girls High School and Diversitat English language students.
At Johnstone Park, immerse yourself in the worlds of the Sensory Portals; singular spaces designed for intimate experiences of art.
The OYSTER project invites you participate in the ritual of eating an oyster, cleansing the shell in water, then adding to the surrounding middens before they are sent back to the bay to create reefs for sea-life.
Connecting Song returns with the premier of three film clips – the culmination of the work of three local unsigned musicians mentored by Adalita (Magic Dirt); Mick Thomas (Weddings Parties Anything); and Mark Wilson (Jet). Chloe St Claire; Jack Meredith and band Alby Jay have each written, recorded and filmed clips of their songs that pay homage to the mountains, beaches and city they all call home. All three will play at The Workers Club Geelong on the night.
All of our cultural venues will be open with programmes to entice you to Heighten Your Senses.
