Shellharbour City Council Presents:

'ENLIVEN'

A COVID-SAFE LIVE N LOCAL SERIES

Music | Art | Learn l Connect

Same service. Delivered differently


WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

In this vastly different time, Shellharbour Council is looking for ways to continue to support and showcase our local creative community.

ENLIVEN is a series of diverse art programs, live music and immersive creative learning experiences developed to 'ENLIVEN' Shellharbour after the recent lock down period. The program will celebrate and showcase local artists, musicians, makers and producers across the region.

This is a COVID-Safe series developed from the highly successful annual Live n Local event. Each experience is designed to be delivered in a reduced capacity way appropriate to the environment we now find ourselves in.

Live music, exhibitions, site specific performance, creative learning experiences - the weird, the wonderful, the tried and the experimental - Enliven is about showcasing and celebrating the region's best artists, musicians and makers.

Curatorial Programs

LIVE N LOOK FOR ART

Live n' Look for Art is a marathon/scavenger style event held across the City designed to encourage exploration and awareness of Shellharbour's existing (and proposed) art scene.

EXHIBITIONS| POP UP PERFORMANCES | LIVE ART| PUBLIC ART

Live n Look for Art will be all inclusive events that can be completed at the participants own pace. The purpose is to bring attention to the wonderful array of art and artists that exist within our City and to provide a unique way for friends and families to connect and experience Art as part of a scavenger hunt style mission.

LIVE N LEARN

Live n' Learn is a series of interactive arts learning experiences incorporating local venues including cafes, restaurants and retail businesses

Beyond a workshop, Live n Learn will be complete, immersive creative experiences - part 'how to', part performance and part social connection.

WORKSHOPS |DIY |MUSIC |ART

Experiences will be delivered with specific connection to the hosting venue or business. A local dress shop might see a wine and cheese night where participants learn to sew, create or up-cycle old clothes. Local bars may play host to performances and song writing workshops. Book stores can be inspired by graphic novels to showcase artwork and drawing workshops.
