Community Celebration Projects

 

FUN ARTS also plan & present community celebration projects.

Events that celebrate community spirit in small ways, not massive extravaganzas with "mega" stars, but with careful support & guidance feature members of the community itself.

Working alongside community groups, local councils, festivals & schools, FUN ARTS have successfully delivered projects like The "Bond" Fire & DRUM OUT! .

The Bond Fire

Fun Arts-Fire Sculpture

The "Bond" Fire project is a format which gives community members a chance to "bond" together in celebration of any number of specilal events relating to community life.

Drawing from time honoured traditions of fire & drumming The "Bond" Fire project is a brilliant way to celebrate community spirit!

An example of this is the "The Gathering" The Gathering was a project created to celebrate the Melbourne suburb of Noble Park's centenary of settlement.

Working together with the local City Council, local schools & members of the community The Gathering was a platform for the various members of the community. both long standing & recent arrivals to tell their stories of their life & experience of living in Nobel Park.

The event had many components, "BATACUDA" opened the show with infectious drumming & brilliant circus skills.

The audience together with local school children who had previously participated in a percussion performance/workshop performed "Drum Out!" which led to the lighting of a fire sculpture "Homage to the transport pallet".

With the backdrop of the burning fire sculpture, various guests were invited to tell their stories. Interspersed with the story telling were various fire juggling acts & a lantern parade was presented.

The lanterns were made by local school children who, had previously participated in a Lantern making /workshops at their respective schools.

This was followed by the lighting of the "NOBLE PARK 100" fire banner.

The culmination of the event was the formation of a circle by the audience around the dying embers of the fire sculpture "Homage to the transport pallet" at which time the children & their parents were invited to throw the lanterns into the fire & make a wish for the future Noble Park.

"Homage to the transport pallet" The humble pallet was picked as a symbol to represent Noble Park due to its vital role in keeping the wheels of industry & society moving in this area.

FUN ARTS conducted Percussion workshops & Lantern making workshops in schools, FUN ARTS designed & constructed the fire sculpture "Homage to the transport pallet" & the "NOBLE PARK 100" fire banner.
