We are thrilled to announce that this year, we mark the event as “A Lishman Celebration” as we partner with the Lishman family to provide inspirational art, film and sculptures from the late Bill Lishman.
To continue the Lishman theme, our hands on art activities will be Bill Lishman inspired; with activities including dance, collaborative winged mural, a take away tile activity, and one-sentence story written by event participants, for event participants.
The event is rounded off with our fantastic partners offering activities and experiences for all to enjoy; Live artistic performers and buskers, hands on activities, and special offerings from PineRidge Arts Council who will offer their mask magic activity, Pickering Community Concert Band providing a live performance at the gazebo and afterwards an up close look at instruments at their Instrument Petting Zoo and Station Gallery with a hands on activity at their SG Pop Up Studio.
