Luminous Streets has begun with artists in Corinella, Coronet Bay, Grantville, Tenby Point and Pioneer Bay leading workshops to help children and residents make simple objects that light up at night.
The light-making will continue until the galleries come alive for a festival in April 2017.
The Small Town Transformation project is a response to the search for connection between the Waterline townships and seeks to involve the entire community in its making.
There is a new website (www.theedgeofus.com.au) and two new artists have been appointed. Project team members Jessica Wilson and Jeannie Haughton have been working with over 100 children at Bass Valley Primary School to create a first suite of light sculptures.
Between now and April 2017, the project’s five artists will entice residents, clubs, committees and passers by to make something to contribute. Every little bit counts!
Then on Saturday, 8 April 2017, all the galleries will come alive with light, food and people for the Luminous Streets festival night, followed by a week-long evening showcase of the fascinating and accessible galleries.
Waterline residents are encouraged to take part. If you’d like host a light sculpture workshop at your home or with your community group, our artists will come to you.
