HotHouse Theatre and Murray Arts are activating IDEA GENERATOR 2 - an online workshop for local artists across disciplines to connect.
As a follow up from our first IDEA GENERATOR held on Friday 5 June, HotHouse Theatre and Murray Arts are activating IDEA GENERATOR 2 - an online workshop for local artists across disciplines to connect, collaborate and develop creative possibilities for new works in spaces across the region. With expressions of interest closing on 10 July for next year's Upstream Festival, we want to maximise the number of local artists who are funded to make works in the region.
This workshop is for local artists with an independent practice across any arts discipline. Our definition of local is those who live, work and or connect with the Murray Arts footprint (AlburyCity, Federation and Greater Hume councils in NSW and City of Wodonga, Indigo and Towong councils in VIC).
Due to COVID-19 restrictions Merv the Galah has taken the Galah Bar ONLINE with some help from his friends!
Six local cross border venues are collaborating to bring the popular Galah Bar to your loungerooms. LIVE streaming from multiple locations you’ll be able to sit by the fire and enjoy incredible local acts from the Albury Wodonga region. Indie music, circus, comedy and more all flying in to your small screen!
Mistress of Ceremonies, Alyce Fisher will keep you informed and on track for an hour of exceptional talent, stories and music, thrills and spills including the super shiny Shampagne Supernova and aerial beauty from Seth Sladen. Full line up to be revealed… 😉
Streaming from Albury Entertainment Centre, Albury LibraryMuseum, The Cube Wodonga, Flying Fruit Fly Circus and Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA).
Produced by HotHouse Theatre with support from Murray Arts and Nomad Films.
My Grandma is 100 Storytime for Aged Care Fundraising
Because of COVID-19, our elderly are isolated in aged care facilities with minimal engagement with the outside world so Aimee Chan author of children's picture book My Grandma Is 100 is producing a short video of children reading the book to camera -- a bit like what storytime is like in the public library for children. This video, along with a hardcopy of the book itself, could then be distributed to aged care facilities for them to watch and read.
Providing the video free to aged care facilities would allow residents to see children, hear them and enjoy the sounds of their voices whilst still maintaining all-important social distancing. Afterwards, having the hardcover book on-site would allow them to read the book at their own leisure.
The project would also allow at least 13 children the opportunity to take part in a creative project that encourages literacy, elocution, public speaking skills and promotes intergenerational relationships. If you'd like to support the project click here
Murray Arts contributes directly to the arts and cultural lifeblood of the NE VIC/ Border region by working directly with individuals, communities and local government to assist them in developing the arts and cultural life of their communities.
