Bioluminescence Project, Entertainment by CORINNE GIBBONS
Following the success of programs and installations at Tathra Wharf, Montreal Goldfield, Cobargo Folk Festival and Candelo Village Festival, Bioluminescence Project is set to light up Towamba on Saturday 17 June 2023.
The Bioluminescence Project is where nature and art meet science. Bioluminescence offers young people in the region the opportunity to develop practical skills and knowledge difficult to get outside of a big city.
In the lead-up to the Towamba event, the project team will work with students from Eden Marine High School.
Students participate in two intensive days of workshops learning video projection mapping, videography and editing skills similar to those used at internationally renowned festivals of light, such as VIVID Sydney and Parrtjima in Alice Springs.
The result is an incredible video and light show showcasing the local environment as well as the creativity and talent of the project participants.
The event will be delivered by the students, who will also be learning valuable event management skills, at Towamba Hall’s Winter Warmer evening, thanks to the Towamba Community Progress Association and support by the Mumbulla Community Foundation.
The Bioluminescence Project has grown through 2023 with the support of the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation’s Backing the Future grant. This has allowed the Bioluminescence Project to complete and present five workshop and projection events across the Bega Valley and Eurobodalla Shires before the end of the year. The next iteration will involve two presentations at Wanderer Festival in October.
