The Victorian Government News has launched Victoria Together where you'll find some of the best music, entertainment, nature and art our state has to offer online. During coronavirus times, this gives us a few more alternatives to help keep us fit and healthy of mind and body. It covers quite a gamut of events you can access while being in ISO as follows.
Children can access NGV at home, Scienceworks, Animals at home live, museum, ABC kids, Melbourne International Film Festival's recommendations for kids, and more. Soothe the beast with music by checking out Sound Gallery Sessions, Virtual Victorian Opera, and so on. Catch up on episode one screened on Sunday 3 May 2020 of The State of Music with Birds of Tokyo, Diesel, G Flip, James Reyne, Michael Gudinski & host Rosie Beaton from the comfort of your own home as per video below.
Film and Cinema has digital creator programs, content from the film and sound archive of Australia, and a host of other interesting articles. Arts, Exhibitions and Design will add a bit of culture to your life with Culture Victoria, Shrine of Remembrance podcasts and videos which could be a good way to relive Anzac Day. As usual, just a few are mentioned, and you need to check out each category for full event information.
If it's Games you're after check out Game Builder, NGV Digital Creatives and other content to enjoy code-crackers, crosswords and quizzes updated every day. Need a laugh? Comedy is the answer. You'll find events delivered LIVE, 26 days of comedy if you can handle it and the wonderful Dolly at a House Party.
Theatre and Dance takes you a mile in their shoes and gets you moving with FCAC (Footscray Community Arts Centre). Why not take adult ballet classes at home. If you'd rather exercise than dance, you'll find it under Sport and Exercise. Wellbeing is everything, so check out some resources to keep you healthy while in isolation.
Perhaps Science and Nature is a good way to let your mind float with the Reef Cam underwater live feed, or the Penguin Burrow Camera. If ISO Eating is all you can think about, check out Food and Drink. Pore over recipes from the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, and healthy recipes and discover how to waste less and use less with some online recipes perfect for leftovers.
The Older Victorians don't miss out either and can go about learning how to create a Facebook account, to stay active, visit the NGV Channel, Royal Botanic Gardens and other activities. The Regional Communities have the Mildura Arts Centre Online, Art at Home with Bendigo Art Gallery and a host more to delve into.
This online hub is here to support Victorians through the coronavirus response. As a dedicated platform, it connects Victorians to our state's best digital experiences and activities. Just as importantly, it connects Victorians to one another. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that this website may contain images and voices of people who have died. If you'd like to get your experience added, you can make a request by watching for updates on Twitter.
