Lake at Cross Keys and Strathmore Pop-up Park


Nick Barlow

Sunday, 16 September, all day

Workshop: 10am–1pm at Cross Keys Pavillion

Procession and Installation: 2pm–8pm between Moonee Ponds Creek and the Strathmore Pop-up Park

Lake is part theatre, part art installation facilitated by artist Nick Barlow, exploring two of our most precious resources; water and people.

The first part of Lake will commence with a morning workshop where participants are invited to make their own costumes from reclaimed recycled plastics.

In the afternoon, water is carried from Moonee Ponds Creek in a procession which ends in the creation of a large piece of temporary public art at the Strathmore Pop-Up Park.

Book online to be part of the workshop, or come along in the afternoon to get involved in ‘Lake’.

This event is free and suitable for all ages.
