This intriguing art event will bring Nowra to life through the eyes of over 80 local makers, artists and school students on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th December 2017 in the Manse Gardens of St Andrews Presbyterian Church. Planet Nowra is a FREE event exploring the concept of ‘place’ through contemporary arts practice.

The vision of Theatre Kantanka director Carlos Gomes has led a team of cutting-edge contemporary artists in the creation of a Nowra specific collection of artworks, installations and live performances. 

It’s a unique experience where visitors will travel through the Manse Gardens by entering a series of structures and domes housing the artworks. At dusk, the walls and surfaces around the Manse come to life with projections highlighting the unexpected beauty of the built landscape.

The team of artists have tapped into local talent who are at the heart of the project by running a series of fantastic workshops in 2017. Known for creating a spectacle, Alison Clouston, Boyd, Katia Molino, Kym Vercoe and Sean Bacon have brought to life a program including music, storytelling, projection and movement it that will take place throughout the day and evening.

Planet Nowra is a family friendly, alcohol free event and entry is free. There will be gelato, snacks, coffee and cool drinks available for purchase onsite. Bring an open mind and prepare to see your city in a ehole new light!
