About this event

‘Alchemy’ is the final coming together of the 15 Project Alchemy artists who have worked together for the last year on a series of cross disciplinary arts projects to build community connection across south-east Australia. As they heal hearts and weave magic through a network of arts-based projects in response to the Black Summer Fires.

The project is facilitated by award-winning Canberra-based Rebus Theatre and has taken place in Bega Valley Shire, Eurobodalla Shire, East Gippsland, Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council, and the ACT with three artists selected from each region.

Projects have included community dances and movement jams, wonder walks through fire-devastated properties, eco-dying, printmaking, lantern, music and chromatogram workshops, cosplay tree planting, music and dance performances and visual art exhibitions. As well as running their own projects their artists have partnered with a range of festivals sharing their creative projects with audiences at The Daring Festival of Possibilities (Bega Valley Shire), River of Arts Festival (Bega Valley Shire) and Lakes Lights Festival (East Gippsland).

You are invited to the official opening where you will meet some of the artists who will be performing with, movement, music and poetry. The opening is free but registrations are essential.
