A diverse range of artistic and cultural projects are to be showcased at one of the main events of the Youth Arts Festival, Aesthetica, to be held in the north court behind the library today.
The range of activities includes a community drumming display, music and dance workshops, the Tianjin artists group, martial arts and dance performances, theatre sports and activities for small children.
This complements the wide range of activities that have been running as part of the nine-day festival, which started last Friday.
Festival director Canobolas Rural Technology High School community liaison and partnerships officer, Vince Lovecchio said the festival has been great so far.”
We’ve partnered Orange’s five cultural institutions, being the Conservatorium of Music, library, museum, gallery and theatre and giving them an opportunity to showcase all the good work they do within the community,” Mr Lovecchio said.
“They are all doing good things individually across the different mediums and this is a chance to showcase this.”
He said the festival also showcases a lot of “light bulb opportunities” that come about by bringing community groups together.
Aesthetica runs from 2.30pm to 7pm, with food and coffee available.
