'Our Backyard…a celebration of special places and spaces'
The Benalla Festival theme for 2018, 'Our Backyard...a celebration of special places and spaces' has inspired conversations in the Red Road Cafe about its potential as a theme for an exhibition at NEA during the Festival. We have downloaded an Expression of Interest form to run an event included in the Festival Program and are keen to receive feedback, ideas and input first.
'The Benalla Festival is celebrated every November on the foreshore of Lake Benalla and around the Rural City. "The Festival is a celebration of the local lifestyle. All events are low or no cost. The program of fun and creativity aims to engage the community and visitors with street entertainment, music, theatre, art, dance, exhibitions, fireworks and more. Every event is a chance to celebrate our community spirit, create, consume and come together for two weekends of fun activities."
