I'm very excited to announce I'll be one of the artist taking part in the very first edition of True North - Reservoir Arts Festival.
For three days, lots of events and activities will completely flood and transform the streets of Reservoir.
In particular, I'll be one of the artist taking part in the event Lost in Translation, a wonderful project that could be described as "a visual arts version of the ancient game "Chinese Whispers" (cit. Belinda Suzette).
In a project that seeks to understand the language of different art forms, emerging and established artists speak of Reservoir and their ideas about the truth of the North. The short story “In The Rezz” by Stella Glorie kicks us off. This story is then passed on to artist Keith McDougall (mentored by Bernard Caleo) to create a comic. Local songwriter Auður (mentored by Andrea Keller), will then take this cartoon and turn it into a song. Finally, visual artist Laura Wood (mentored by Belinda Suzette) will turn the song into something visually awesome.
If you're interested in find out more, you can download the program of the entire festival on Darebin City Council website.
Don't miss out the Lost in Translation tour led by comedian Kate McLennan!
Hope to see you there!!
