Shepparton Festival 20th Year 2016
Challenging audiences to take a fresh look at Shepparton.
The first Shepparton Festival was staged in 1997. Since then, the Festival has been successfully staged every year and is regarded as a major calendar event within regional Victoria. The recent 2016 Festival celebrated its 20th year we presented 49 events in 17 days across a large geographic area from Dookie to Murchison..
I designed the Festival to embrace all that is Greater Shepparton and invited audiences to look at their region differently; to be consumed by process and practice and their festival experience.
By facilitating program partnerships with arts and cultural funding bodies, local businesses, educational institutions, local government, industry and community organisations I directed a Festival that supports arts development throughout the region and generates community engagement. The Festival builds capacity through strengthening communities, encouraging participation, building relationships and connecting the corporate, private and public sectors.
