North Coast Weekender - - Front Page -

APRIL is the time to shine for the sub­urb of Heathridge and lo­cal res­i­dents and young­sters are en­cour­aged to get in­volved.

Lul­laby is a new in­ter­ac­tive art­work pre­sented by the City of Joon­dalup in con­junc­tion with AWE­SOME Arts.

The brain­child of Luke Jer­ram, it has been de­scribed as “an il­lu­mi­nated, sur­round-sound art­work for fam­i­lies, de­liv­ered through the com­mu­nity, to your door at dusk”.

As a par­ent, Jer­ram said he was aware a child’s bed­time was a spe­cial and frag­ile time of day.

Lul­laby is the first art­work he has made specif­i­cally for young chil­dren.

The event will be held this week­end, April 15 and 16.

Par­tic­i­pants will dec­o­rate their bi­cy­cles with neon lights, LEDs and other glow­ing ob­jects at work­shops at Ad­mi­ral Park from 5pm to 6pm each night, be­fore set­ting off on a ride

through the sub­urb from 6pm to 7pm.

Rid­ers will be ac­com­pa­nied by the sounds of a lul­laby, cour­tesy of com­poser

Andy Tay­lor.

The event is free for lo­cal fam­i­lies, but only peo­ple aged 18 and over can take part in the ride.

Spec­ta­tors are en­cour­aged to pack a pic­nic and choose a van­tage point along the cy­cle route to ex­pe­ri­ence the art­work.

The City has con­trib­uted $10,000 to­wards the project.
