     Look  Up    

                                       

     from 5pm

    SUNDAY 26 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;

 

Step out 

your front door, to the driveway, the naturestrip.

 

Lookup     

raise your torch, phone, lightsaber, wand, and switch all your with on at twilight. 

Shine your light 

Join;

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.

2.     LIGHT
