SeeChange – Jervis Bay Arts Festival 01–10 June 2019
The beautiful and largely unspoilt environment of the Shoalhaven is well known as a summer destination for its spectacular beaches, national parks, native flora and fauna and wide range of outdoor pursuits. The SeeChange Jervis Bay Arts Festival shows another wonderful aspect of the Shoalhaven – a haven for artists, performers, poets, writers, musicians, and great culinary talent.
From Saturday 01 to Monday 10 June 2019 come and experience the creative and performing arts, culture, cuisine and way of life in and around beautiful Jervis Bay, NSW. The program of the 11th SeeChange Festival is shaping up to be as rich and varied as ever.
At dusk on Saturday 01 June, enjoy the official opening event in White Sands Park, Huskisson – SeeLight.SeeFire.SeeChange – followed by SeeFood@SeeChange presented by the Huskisson Jervis Bay Food Network – a magnificent outdoor feast for the senses bringing together creative and culinary arts.
The physical hub and creative heart of SeeChange throughout the whole festival will be The Haven – housing the major visual arts and small sculpture prize and exhibition, a pop-up cafe and shop, a drop-in arts studio, makers’ markets, and some experimental work by local performance artists.
Visitors to exhibitions on the festival ArtPath will see the work of local creators in intimate settings and deepen their appreciation of the creative thinking and process involved in making the art and craft on show.
Over the June long weekend enjoy shows in the kooky pop-up theatre, The Alkazar – comedy, magic, music and acrobatics – plus roving performers and great open-air stuff happening throughout White Sands Park, including: The Circus Drop Zone – try trapeze, acrobatics, juggling, unicycling, hula-hoop, clowning, fantastic, interactive fun for all ages; Loonatic Spectacular – a wonderful after dark interactive illumination that is a must see; Dr Hubble – everybody loves bubbles, but Dr Hubble really LOVES bubbles and he wants to show you why.
