Colour Up Karoonda
Colour Up Karoonda is a FREE family-fun afternoon/evening with live country music, a festival/street party, family entertainment, food, street market and the highlight event – the launch of the Karoonda silo art.
The Mallee town of Karoonda takes silo art to a new high this June in an Australian first to turn the town’s grain store into a canvas for a spectacular evening showcase of illuminated art. In what will be the country town’s answer to Vivid Sydney, Karoonda will step out from under the shadow of the recent drought to make a make a bigger – and brighter – impression than any other town on Australia’s silo art trail.
Colour Up Karoonda, a free community festival, launches the switching on of spectacular evening digital projections onto the Viterra silos with a country-style street party and surprise animation and light show on Sunday 16 June 2019. The event kicks off in the town’s main street from 2pm – 9pm featuring performances by South Australian rising country music stars Cassidy Rae Gaiter, Matt James and Taylor Pfeiffer, along with an appearance by the event’s star MCs – Adelady’s Hayley and Lauren. Karoonda’s silos will be lit up with spectacular, colourful unique art projected directly onto them throughout the evening until 9pm, with a special surprise animation piece also on the cards.
Every night for the following month, the silo projections will continue, featuring a vibrant gallery of work created by South Australian artists, before a permanent day and night installation is created.
For families who want to make a night of it, there’s also extra camping sites made available at the Karoonda Caravan Park, which can be booked through the District Council of Karoonda East Murray on 8578 1004.
About the installation:
The District Council of Karoonda East Murray partnered with illumination specialists, Illuminart, to create the projections. It was made possible by funding received by the Council through the Australian Government’s Drought Communities Fund (DCF) and the ongoing support and assistance of Viterra.
