ACT Natimuk was successful in a proposal to produce an outdoor activation project for the Northern Grampians Shire Council.
The project, ‘Gatherings 2022’ invites community and visitors alike to take a journey of projections, light, movement and sound, revisiting the arts and culture each town already has to offer but from a new perspective.
Gatherings 2022 starts off with Great Western on Saturday 14th May with New Vintage, produced by Verity Higgins – a fresh, outdoor, big-screen event, launching photos of local characters in the wine industry followed by the just released, award-winning film Blind Ambition.
Out of the Box in Stawell on Friday 27th May and produced by Jacinda O’Sullivan is a streetscape of live action, performance, music, art, installations and sound. Physical theatre artists 5 Angry Men will present their jaw dropping performance work The Bells in the evening after earlier street roving.
A two week break to catch the breath before producer Jillian Pearce surprises and amazes in Halls Gap on Saturday 11th June with The Moth Trail. An outdoor light and projection trail developed with Artists and the Halls Gap community. Whisperings have also been heard of the appearance of an Opera singer gracing rooftops as she projects her vocal finesse across the township.
St Arnaud rounds up the festival with Lights On, produced by Mary French. It provides an opportunity to check out the evocative, interactive augmented reality that celebrates some of St Arnaud’s iconic murals during the day on Friday 17th June and continues after dark on Saturday 18th June in the Town Hall precinct, where you can discover images, animation, colours and sounds breathing life into unexpected places.
