Create By The Lake
Exciting school holiday fun comes again to GJ’s By The Lake on Wednesday, October 4th with a special event Create By The Lake from 10:30AM on.
Create By The Lake is an opportunity for the local community to meet some of the artists involved with the Liddell WORKS project, a collaborative partnership between Arts Upper Hunter and AGL to commemorate and capture the closure of the Liddell Power Station through the arts. Young people and adults are invited to take part in creative workshops such as cartooning, crochet, clay landscaping, black smithing and mural painting.
Participants will also be able to experience an amazing 3D Virtual Reality tour of the Liddell Power Station through headsets and goggles, the brainchild of Newcastle creative, Tim Black.
The first 50 young people through the gate at 10:30AM will receive a free laser tag pass, thanks to the generous support of Upper Hunter Community Services through their BHP Community Capacity Building grant. AGL has also contributed 20 free plaster painting kits to the first young ones aged 10 and under through the gate.
Workshop numbers will be limited to ensure everyone gets the most from them. You can reserve your spot in a workshop by calling Marina on 0498 742 731 or arrive at the GJ’s gate at 10:30AM for early registration. Workshops will commence at 11:00AM and run throughout the day.
At 12:00PM the mesmerising Waagangaala Dance group will do a Smoking Ceremony, Welcome To Country and Creation Dance.
Stunt clown, magician and entertainer extraordinaire The Amazing Jono will also be there with his crazy inventions, tricks and mad antics keeping the crowds amused throughout the day. Free mini golf and GJ’s usual attractions will be available. Plenty on offer to keep the family occupied.
Entry on the day is free as are the art workshops. Muswellbrook Rotary Club will be offering a bar-b-que lunch, Double Picc Coffee Van will be in attendance, fairy floss and icy cones will all be available at family friendly prices.
Community supporters Power FM will be broadcasting live, in between musicians performing from the Muswellbrook Conservatorium of Music.
Create By The Lake has been made possible through the generous support of AGL and Create NSW.
Come along for a wonderful, creative day out for the whole family! Don’t miss out!!
