ADVERTISING FEATURE

Visible is a bold new art residency will be held at night under lights on the stunning foreshore in Streaky Bay from January2 to 5 January in 2018.

Streaky Bay Tourism are asking locals and visitors to join a creative and vibrant hub of innovative community artists who want to collaborate with you to deliver free, spontaneous and interactive art experiences at the jetty between 6pm and 10pm each night.

Be curious, engaged and connect with workshops in:

Flow: A Connection to Place, water vessel workshops and a floating jetty installation with innovative visual artist Annalise Rees.

Float: A beach studio space of live ephemeral and intuitive abstract painting, installation and video with ‘rad’ community engagement artist Henry Jock Walker.

Blue: An interactive performance in the beach environment with theatre, music and installation focusing on everything ‘Blue’ with curious performer Kaspar Schmidt Mumm.

Vibre: Workshops creating with textiles, fibres, rope, recycled marine debris and crab pots to create jetty guerrilla installations with popular local artists Leah King and Lauren Karp.

Expose: A Light Painting workshop and projections with digital artist Cam Edson.

Registration is required. Keen photographers and artists are encouraged to register or find out more by contacting Jayne Holland on 0427 706 454. 

Only 12 spots are available. Registrations will be onsite for all other art activities.

On January 6 between 9pm and 10pm, a public art projection will display the outcomes of the light painting workshops at the Visible site.

“Our group are excited about this arts in tourism project at a peak time of year,” said Jayne Holland, President of Streaky Bay Tourism.

“The Visible Residency will provide free creative and fun activities for families, artists and people of any age at night when it’s cooler.

“We were the successful recipient of Step Out funding for $20,000 from the Regional Arts Australia through Country Arts SA and $2,000 through the Community Grants Fund from the District Council of Streaky Bay.

“In addition, a working group of tourism, community and council people are currently expanding on the Visible Festival concept to harness existing events and encourage new events.”

Participants are asked to help out by collecting and providing marine debris ropes and fishing net, crab hoops and washed 1 litre cardboard milk cartons.

Streaky Bay Tourism acknowledges the support of Regional Arts Australia Step Out funding through Country Arts SA, the Community Grants Fund of the District Council of Streaky Bay and ArtsUp, Streaky Bay.
