Artists, musicians, performers, dancers and craft makers of all kinds are invited to have a say on how the Rocks Laneway can become ‘the stage’ for local artists and artisans.
The Rocks Laneway features three areas for local artists to exhibit and perform within the former Rocks building, at the revamped Clock Tower Square and along the Post Office Lane.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the Rocks Laneway provides a vibrant backdrop for year round arts and cultural events and activities.
“The many wall spaces throughout the Laneway area, which include light boxes on the Telstra building in the Post Office Lane, could become the hub for community art exhibitions,” he said.
“Whilst the considerable under cover ‘floor space’ in the Former Rocks building and the open air spaces in the Post Office Square and Post Office Lane has the potential to become a community performance centre.
“City region artisans could also use the area to market their creations which could even include Chef long table events featuring local produce during any local festival.”
If you have ideas on how you would like to showcase your talents, or the talents of a group you belong to, then come along to The Rocks Laneway Drop-In Session on Thursday 4 April 2019 from 3-5pm in the Randolph Stow Room at the Geraldton Regional Library.
Ideas submitted at the session will inform the development of the Rocks Laneway Public Arts Strategy and Place Management Plan.
