Lighting up winter with creativity is the theme for the 2023 Winter Arts Festival.
Now in its 21st year, the festival will be held at venues across Casey from Thursday 15 June until Sunday 30 July.
City of Casey Director Community Life Callum Pattie said the festival has been created with the community at its heart.
“Every offering in the program is by the community or made for the community, to engage with the art in new ways,” he said.
“The festival has a packed program of more than 60 events for all ages, either free or low cost, including Seussical — a fun filled extravaganza to entertain the young and the young at heart, and For Our Elders — short documentary honouring and capturing the stories of Aboriginal Elders in the south east.
“Berwick District Woodworkers (BDWWC) Annual Expo will also be held and will include live demonstrations, children’s activities, and chainsaw carving.”
Other events include a breathtaking light show over Anniversary Lake at Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick, the Lost Dogs’ Disco — a temporary sculpture at Bunjil Place that celebrates the place of dogs in our lives, and a range of school holiday options to keep children’s imaginations active during the winter holidays.
