Warm up your winter and experience the rich arts and culture on offer across Casey at the 2022 Winter Arts Festival.
Held from 11 June to 31 July, the festival features more than 50 events and a mix of workshops, indoor and outdoor performances, talks and exhibitions, many of which are free or low cost, held at venues across Casey.
There is something for all ages with events such as the hit musical Jersey Boys, the classic play One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, the music of Harry Potter performed by the Casey Philharmonic Orchestra, a showcase from our talented Maori and Pasifika youth at Nesian Fest, artist talks, 12 exhibitions, school holiday programs across Casey’s libraries, craft workshops for adults and children, a writing workshop and a song writing competition.
This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the festival and the most ambitious public offering yet – the Casey Cornucopia 24-day mini-festival that will see Bunjil Place transformed into an immersive garden showcasing the heritage of Casey’s foodways and the best produce in the region.
A full month of activities and events is also being held at Wilson Botanic Park throughout July in celebration of the park’s 30th birthday.
City of Casey Chair of Administrators, Noelene Duff PSM, said the annual Winter Arts Festival aims to reflect the diversity of our community through a range of art forms as well as encouraging participation in the arts and greater awareness of the local arts community.
“Every part of the program shines a light on the incredibly vibrant arts and culture we have in the City of Casey and encourages us to join in and be a part of it,” Ms Duff said.
“It is a joy to see our local theatre groups, artists, crafters, dancers and community groups come together once again to light up winter with creative inspiration, and I encourage everyone to take a look at the program and get involved.”
