A Murtoa’s Big Weekend event committee is busily organising this year’s showcase, with new additions planned for the program.
A recent Regional Arts Victoria grant for The Stick Shed is set to help create an artist’s residency with Natimuk artists Dave Jones, Anthony Schellens and Jillian Pearce. The trio will explore the artistic possibilities of projection mapping and its elements, and will develop a new show to transform the space.
A Family, Fun and Film Night will also be at The Stick Shed after having been hosted at Lake Marma during previous Murtoa’s Big Weekends.
A short film competition is planned for the evening, with a theme of ‘Through my Eyes – Wimmera Mallee’. People of all ages can put together a short film that best reflects this subject, whether it is an advertisement for a club or community group or a funny story featuring local scenery.
The event will be on Friday, October 4, from 6pm – after the conclusion of the Murtoa Show. It is free and food will be available for purchase at The Stick Shed.
