HIGH-ENERGY ARTS SEASON ON THE WAY
GIANT marionettes, musicals, fierce dinosaurs, concerts, workshops, art and photography exhibitions and poetry competitions are just some of the fantastic things on offer in the Town of Victoria Park during the Town’s 2017 Arts Season in April.
After transforming its annual Art Awards into an Arts Season last year, the event will now showcase local, regional and international artists and exhibitions throughout April in many different locations.
Town of Victoria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan said he was amazed at the level of diversity in this year’s program.
“We really do have something for everyone, from children’s art workshops and exhibitions that appeal to little people, like Crown’s Jurassic Creatures, through to events for adults and families such as an exhibition from leading British artist and filmmaker John Akomfrah, a world music concert, intergenerational community art projects and a fashion show,” he said.
“The Arts Season is a celebration of exceptional talent that we have on our doorstep and provides our local and wider community with an opportunity to see and do things they wouldn’t normally.”
Among the events taking place will be a National Youth Week event with artist Phil Doncon at either John MacMillan Park or in the Drama Room at the Leisurelife Centre, depending on weather, on April 7 between 4pm and 5pm.
Doncon is an artist and a performer who is both energetic and inspiring.
His unique ‘live’ painting performances are vigorous and dynamic, as well as being highly entertaining. He creates rapid-fire images in unison with diverse styles of music, interspersed with dance and gymnastics.
Bookings are essential through the Town’s event calendar at victoriapark.wa. gov.au or call 9373 5500. For a program, visit www.victoria park.wa.gov.au/events.
