Twilight Spaces invites the local community and beyond to explore, engage and experience the magic of Katoomba with street art tours, performing arts, live music, creative workshops and pop-up kitchens.
The exciting Sunday afternoon event on April 10 will last until the evening and will include entertainment for the whole family at multiple locations around downtown Katoomba.
“We have a vibrant artistic community in the Blue Mountains and this wonderful free event showcases a variety of local talent,” said Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill.
“It’s a chance for all of us to come together and celebrate, especially after tough times. Bring your families and friends to experience a fabulous lineup of creative entertainment, while supporting our local arts community.
“There are also some fantastic new art installations and there’s a really exciting new street art trail to discover. This event will bring downtown to life with color, performance and sound in our back streets.”
Twilight Spaces features interactive installations, traveling illuminations, live performances by local musicians, and workshops exploring natural and high-tech materials, including lantern making, shadow puppets, a nature scavenger hunt, 3D printing and stop motion animation stations.
The live musical performances will take place in the downtown Katoomba arcade, across the street from the “Gallery Precinct,” and Ha’Penny Lane will hum along with a solar-powered sound system. There will be a pop-up dining area in the arcade’s upper-level food kitchens and various local businesses will expand commerce.
A new printed brochure will be available to guide art lovers through the new Urban Art Trail to view the many works of art that now reside in the city centre. This includes the Street Art Walk, the Blue Mountains Cultural Center and the new Living ways artworks – a recent project which saw the installation of five groundbreaking artworks.
This free event is presented by Blue Mountains Town Council and Fusion Boutique, with funding from the NSW Government’s Festival of Place and the Bushfire Community Recovery and Resilience Fund through the Joint Commonwealth/State Disaster Recovery Arrangements.
The event will strictly follow COVID safety procedures as outlined by NSW Health. Times, locations and activities or performances may also vary due to wet weather or changes in public health requirements.
