Emily Dev­ers (aka MIMI)

Life & Style Weekend - - ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE -

EMILY DEV­ERS, OTH­ER­WISE KNOWN AS MIMI, HAS BEEN “HOLD­ING A PAINT BRUSH SINCE SHE CAME OUT OF THE WOMB!”. It is this life­long love of paint­ing that has seen Emily be­come an ac­com­plished mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary artist, fes­ti­val di­rec­tor and work­shop fa­cil­i­ta­tor with a fo­cus on com­mu­nity en­gage­ment and global con­ver­sa­tion. When the op­por­tu­nity arose to be a part of Hori­zon Fes­ti­val Emily jumped at it. “I love any op­por­tu­nity to paint large scale out­side and con­nect with peo­ple who are just as ex­cited about cre­ativ­ity,” she said. “I get to make a mess with paint, cre­ate di­a­logue and art­work around the things I care about most in this world, and con­nect with so many great hu­mans from com­mu­ni­ties around the world.” This con­nec­tion to com­mu­nity will be on show dur­ing Hori­zon when Emily, and in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned street artist Beast­man, will paint a mu­ral that will re­flect and cel­e­brate our re­la­tion­ship with the ocean. Stand By Me, pre­sented in part­ner­ship with MRA, MMVAF and Hori­zon Fes­ti­val. Live Mu­ral Art: 28-30 Aug, 9am -5pm, Al­ley­way, 6 Ocean St and 37 Du­porth Ave, Ma­roochy­dore.
