City of Greater Geraldton, Media Release, 21 September 2021
Colourful Indigenous artwork will be splashed across the Batavia Coast Marina this Sunday night thanks to unique projection show “COVE” that forms part of the inaugural Shore Leave Festival.
Projection artists VJzoo will collaborate with local Yamaji artists for the vibrant installation, which is set to be an immersive treat that is free for the public to enjoy.
Those attending can also get involved, with interactive projections on the Museum of Geraldton wall.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said it is a must see.
“Batavia Marina is going to look phenomenal with vibrant Indigenous artwork projected over the area at night,” he said.
“It will be a sensory experience that combines art, culture, environment and technology, and is free for all to enjoy.
“We are proud to host this event thanks to support from the State Government’s Regional Economic Development Scheme.”
Local artists also have the chance to get involved through an intensive one-on-one mentoring program run through Pollinators. The goal is to upskill participants in the growing field of artistic projection as well as provide support and training.
This free community event is in collaboration with the City of Greater Geraldton, Pollinators and Yamaji artists. It is made possible thanks to funding from the State Government’s Regional Economic Development Scheme.
“COVE” as part of the Shore Leave Festival will take place on Sunday 26 September from 6.30pm – 10pm.
