The Silos in Sunshine will no longer be silent. They'll be coming to life at the Sunshine Silos Projection Festival on Saturday 16 November 2019 from 4pm to 11pm at J R Parsons Reserve, 12 Stanford St, Sunshine and you're all invited to this FREE event.

Brought to you by the Victorian State Government through the Pick My Project initiative, this is a celebration of the arts, Sunshine's rich industrial history and cultural diversity, with the side effect of rejuvenating a much loved landmark that paves the way for other commercial opportunities.

Aurora Kurth - MC

Brimbank City Council and residents have partnered up to make the iconic Silos as the centrepiece for a program of art, live music and performances and projections designed by Little Projector Company. Kids activities abound, along with roving performers, and food trucks; for what is a celebration without food and drink. Enjoy this drug and alcohol free with the whole family and friends.

As you can see from the poster above, there's a plethora of entertainment organised just for you. Once darkness takes hold, the silos will be lit up with more than 1000 artworks and animations and the Reserve will take on a Festival vibe. What a great way to hang out with neighbours, family and friends in an atmosphere akin to a block party.

Aurora Kurth will MC the event. A highly sought after entertainer, she's renown for her sublime vocals, cheeky comedy and sharp wit. Kinematic, an Aussie four-piece indie pop band will be sharing their music with the local community amongst other musicians. A bit of trivia fact; lead singer Michael is a Sunshine resident for over a decade.

Fandata Studios will be running their EscriVento workshop; a creative constructive project aimed to build flying gifts to the skies. Under the guidance of Ana Rita Pires & Mito Elias, visual artists and community arts practitioners, children will create kite gifts that'll resemble mini parachutes and symbolically carry a personal message from each participant. This activity will allow the kids to send special messages to their neighbourhood, or neighbour, friend, family etc. Ana Rita and Mito have a vast experience in working with youth and diverse community groups.
