Digital Drifting Saturday 12 July

Yeppoon Town Hall
Sometimes we forget the significance of our town areas and elements within. We are encouraging people to take another look. The project is not just about history, it will be including content from the past and the present, it is more about capturing the true essence of life on the Coast. This large scale projection from Peter & Emily Szilveszter of Living Lens, with the assistance of Hughi Simmons, will be a spectacle of light, colour, sound and movement that will draw the viewer into a fully immersive experience. Bring a rug or a chair, enjoy yummy hot food from the food vans and sit back to watch Yeppoon Town Hall as it has never looked before on a Saturday evening......
Then, at 7.30 pm the doors will open at the Town Hall for Wendy Matthews in Concert with Kate Leahy. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
