Festival Opening Celebration
March 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
All are invited to the Opening of the Festival which this year will take place in the heart of the CBD, Maude St Mall. On display will be the various artworks that local artists have produced to encapsulate this year’s theme EVOLVE. Our Creative Director, Jamie Lea, will give you a few tips about how you can get the most out of this year’s festival.
“There’s no better way to start the festival than to join us at the Festival Opening Celebration! It’s a great way to meet people and it gives you a flavour of what is to come, and what to look out for, and what to be sure to attend,” Jamie Lea.
For the visually stimulated, you can come and see the artwork produced by Shepparton’s emerging artists as a response to our Call to Create – comprising the entries created for our guide cover for 2020. But for the aurally focussed, we also have the creative writing responses to the artwork in our second Call to Create which entails the authors from GV Writers Group reading their works. This is a great place to celebrate what promises to be a fabulous 17 days for everyone associated with the festival: artists, punters, organisers, sponsors and performers.
Afterwards we will stroll down Maude St to #108, where we look forward to viewing the exhibition of Shepparton Life Drawing Group at their opening.
