Lighting up the MET in the heart of the new Maroochydore City Centre, CITY BLOOM , a pop-up Projection and Art Event invites the community to be part of this fabulous free art event, an event that encourages you to explore and immerse, in the mesmerising ambience and beauty of our local flora.

Captured in spectacular detail by multi-media artists, Man & Wah , a night garden of large-scale photographic projections will be centre stage in the grassed amphitheatre, where audiences are invited to create their own creative responses to the projections, through live drawing.

Locals and visitors are encouraged, via the CITY BLOOM Projection and Art event, to really think about the role that plants, flowers and nature may play as the city blossoms; to consider ways to enliven the city centre and our own home locations.

A splendid paper lantern art installation and botanical artwork, created during a series of community workshops, will also be on display.

CITY BLOOM is a collaboration between Dr Sue Davis of Wild/Flower Women, Chony Bowden of ' Chony's Art Room ' and Brisbane based, photo media artists Man & Wah , well known for their exquisite botanical imagery and creations.

Proudly showcased by this Cosmic Collective of artists, CITY BLOOM is promising a visual feast that follows on from the first Design Series event of 2023 'A Pathway through Net Zero', with special guest Joan Ko.

This double feature of Design Series Talk and Pop-Up Art exhibition will explore how nature and technology can provide us with abundant opportunities to create a more sustainable future.

Registration is essential for the FREE CITY BLOOM public event. ** Please follow this online link, via the Eventbrite website, to secure your spot.
The MET Bar will be open and operated by the Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance , with all profits going directly to local art projects. Delicious food by The Twisted Taco will be available to purchase.

Looking to enhance your garden or patio or home with some sought-after native plants? Coolum Community Native Nursery will be selling some fabulous plants on the evening of the CITY BLOOM Projection and Art event.

Make sure to bring a picnic blanket and/or chairs to sit back, relax and enjoy a spectacular pop-up visual feast of local flora.
