Do not miss the GRAND FINALE:
Illuminart and Festival Fleurieu have partnered to make a very special show for Carnival Fleurieu. Through collaboration with local artists,
school children and the festival, a bright, bold unique new show will launch the festival.
The show is called ‘Plenty’ and it transforms the walls of Yankalilla Agricultural Hall, into an extraordinary animated display that combines three projects into an outstanding, big bright and spectacular addition to the Carnival.
To begin with, a tapestry of stories collected from locals, has been illustrated and animated by school children of the region, and will turned into a striking display that brings all generations to share and celebrate our region.
Another component of the show will feature a celebration of the Fleurieu and its bountiful produce, not only of the agricultural, but also of the arts. This will include an opportunity for local artists and studios seeking to have their visual art writ and lit on the large scale!
A final part of the show will be the launch of illuminart’s regional SA odyssey, Port to Port, which will begin at the Yankalilla Hall and then begin a 9 month journey connecting regional communities all around SA, before being turned into an interactive digital feature.
The combination of these three extraordinary productions showcased onto the Agricultural Hall, is a unique opportunity to see South Australia’s iconic illumination artists at work, in a rich display always said to be better than fireworks, and a great way to experience storytelling on a grand scale.
Come to experience the colour and movement; join in the fun and excitement; share your love of the Fleurieu Coast.
