For a festival close that’s bigger
than Knausgard’s autobiography,
SATURDAY 25 JULY
Inspired by Julia Baird’s 'Phosphorescence', Dumbledores tribute, & Homer (oaf not Odyssey), we’ve been thinking of things that sustain us when (parts of) our worlds darken. So, for awe, wonder, words, and community togetherness, we’re asking you to;
your front door, to the driveway, the naturestrip.
raise your torch, phone, lightsaber, wand, and switch all your with on at twilight.
Shine your light
the Mechanics Hall
Apollo Bay P-12 College
boats in the harbor
Tennis, Football/Netball & Surf Club
Apollo Bay Police, Apollo Bay Ambulance, the CFA, the Mechanics Hall
& WordFest, for a wonderfully rare event. We will capture an aerial snapshot of Apollo Bay at dusk, & all you need to do is step outside and shine your light.
CAN YOU HEAR THE PLANE?
WordFest will be capturing an eagle-eye image of how we shine when things go dark. Emitting light for one another; telling the rest of the state that we’re still here when all this ends: OUR LIGHT projected back to us for posterity.
...& if you send us an image of your light in the dark, Victor from Apollo Bay Aviation will fly you & your friends on a scenic flight to the Twelve Apostles for you.
Most AWEsome photo WINS!
& no need to get too flash! Take a snap that's fun, inventive, & celebrates how blessed we are to live in this stunning coastal hamlet.
STEP OUT: Front garden, nature strip, your roof, a friend's place...converging COVIDly of course.
LOOK UP: Phone, lamp, outside lights, whatever's around the house. Point skywards & beam!
Can you hear a plane circling the town?
