Tales of Christmas In the Rocks
December 1 – 26
With the aura of Christmas waltzing in the air, 107 Presents and The Rocks teamed up to create an installation that celebrated Christmases gone by in The Rocks.
We took you on a Christmas journey through history with poetry by Tug Dumbly, alongside artworks by 107 artists and designers. We explored The Rocks in 1820 from the eyes of a child, cheered on Donovan in 1933 playing backyard cricket on Boxing Day and joined Sonia in the year 2000 as they share their family’s Christmas cooking tips for savouries and sweets.
Voices and Visions – A Celebration of Shopfront Arts
Coming in January
107 Presents: Voices and Visions – A Celebration of Shopfront Art is a youth run festival bringing work from the most exciting emerging performers in the St George region to the CBD. Curated by a dedicated team of young people, Voices and Visions will showcase art that is NOW and that will lead us into the future.
Using the latest electronic tools Hack Sounds combines music education, collaboration, technology and inclusive design to explore accessible ways to create music.
Educators from Heaps Decent, Ableton and graduates from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, alongside our existing facilitators, will support basic introduction to the tools through to more sophisticated skills development.
