From Friday 11 August to Sunday 27 August 2017 West Projections Festival is back to light up Footscray’s streets and surrounds through art. It’s a fantastic free community event that gives visitors an opportunity to explore the inner west’s creative spaces, business and public places in a different way.
The focus for West Projections festival 2017 is ‘Synthesis’. The festival aims to celebrate commonalities rather than differences through video projection.
I am co-producing Dancing Lights, a free family-friendly dance party with a difference on Saturday 19 August 3-5pm! Experience projection art in a whole new way by immersing yourself in a moving dance floor projection created by Mosster Studio.Warm up your dancing legs with Born to Boogie, create some wearable art with me through my new identity Wheelie Good Fun and Jo Skladzien from Small Scapes. See you on the dance floor! FREE BOOKINGS HERE
Other family-friendly events include:
