The July programme of the Sunshine Coast's Horizon Festival is promising to be another month filled with inspiration, entertainment and creativity.
July presents the next Open Air concert by Katie Noonan and Louise King, and a magical augmented reality adventure for children in 'A Forest In My Pocket'.
Also available to enjoy are another heat of The Bunker, an immersive soundscape series exploring Sunshine Coast environments, two more Homegrown commissions, and a Rewind to 2019's 'Elements'.
“The July programme offers something for all ages and interests, from augmented reality for children, to spoken word, music and digital art," Community Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski says. "But it’s not just about consuming the art, there are opportunities to get involved with participatory activities and artwork too.”
The programme will continue to celebrate local artists and showcase stunning Sunshine Coast locations.
'Listening In The Wild'
"One of the great gifts of moving the festival online this year is that we’ve been able to showcase the Sunshine Coast region, and our extraordinary artists, to the world," Artistic Director Lynne Bradley adds. "The July program is another carefully curated suite of stunning events which will both delight and challenge our audiences, and encourage them to engage with the arts!"
The folks at Horizon couldn't wait, so they've also shared a sneak peek of two August events: 'Field Trip' is an online research symposium featuring creative practice at the intersection of art, science, technology and the environment. . . Eumundi School Of Rock is a drive-in concert with performances from 23 young rockers as well as Katie Noonan and Jack Carty.
