Groovin the Moo 2018May 8, 2018
After many months of working on the Groovin the Moo community art project, we installed the teepees on Friday 4 May and went to check out the festival in action on Sunday 6 May 2018.
Umbrella did 6 weeks of workshops to create our public art installation for the Groovin the Moo festival. The theme for this year’s festival was “Back to Craft”. Ann Bartholomeusz was the artist facilitator on this project working with Angela Little planning the artwork, delivering a series of community art workshops and then installing it at the festival. We had 40 people work over 200 hours to transform bamboo poles, garden netting and CDs into a giant crafty creation! We gave 35 free tickets to participants who attended 2 of the workshops and dedicated a minimum of 6 hours to the project. With a team of 6 volunteers, it took 8 hours on site to install the artworks. Thanks to everyone involved!
