belgrave becomes festival town
There's some terrific festivals coming up in Belgrave and surrounds in the next couple of weeks. This Saturday, 24 Nov - 10am to 10pm, Belgrave comes alive with the End of the Line Festival. There's a huge program available at the festival website, be sure to study up, there's so much going on in a lot of interesting spaces. It's been terrific to be able to support the festival with a grant from my community ward fund.
Don't forget to head down to Blacksmith's Way near the station entrance to see the launch of one of the more innovative art projects, something I've been working on with Tiffaney Bishop and her collective of young artists. Be there at 4pm and you'll find out more....
The following week on Saturday 1 December - starting 4pm at the Cameo Outdoor Cinema, Belgrave, will be the Three One Six Oh! Film Festival. A short film competition for young filmmakers. I'm proud to be able to support the best film award with a grant from my community ward fund.
The afternoon starts with live music at 4, a pop up art exhibition space in 'the tunnel' , then at dusk the movies start (for a full program click here). Best Film Award presentations will be at Earthly Pleasures across the road from the Cameo. What a great way to spend the first day of summer.
Next day, Sunday 2 December, sees the first ever Victorian closed road longboard /
slalom race. The event is a colloboration of Yarra Ranges Council Youth Services, ASRA and Team Melburn. It's an all ages, family friendly drug and alcohol free event.
Who'd live anywhere else, there's plenty to do on the mountain!
