Animating Spaces – Eudlo Dreaming magically awoke the usually sleepy chalet of Eudlo on the evening of the 7th of September2013 As the sun set, a throng of over 1000 people gathered underneath a monumental ghost gum to witness three creative dreams became reality in a promenade performance celebrating indigenous culture, contemporary classical composition, projection art, street art, community dance and cultural heritage, natural and man-made spaces. “Eudlo was absolutely transformed. It is amazing how a road closure for a performance encouraged people to take ownership of the whole town in such a joyful and creative way,” says Ant McKenna, Senior Development Officer (Creative), Sunshine Coast Regional Council. “Credit must be given to Amy Martin and Eudlo Cultural Collective for their vision and their combined persistence to make this event a huge success.” As dusk descended, the crowd was welcomed to country in a mesmerising fire ceremony by Lyndon Davis on behalf of the Gubbi Gubbi, heralding the evening’s proceedings. Dusk Mantra, featuring a children’s and community choir of over one hundred voices and an ensemble of digeridoo, cello,percussion and flute, held the audience spell-bound a musical performance where sounds of nature at dusk echoed throughout the valley. Lightscape, a collaboration between choreographer Linley Boyle and photographer Bonnie Jenkins, transformed the much loved skate park into a stage when 50 children from locals schools cloaked in white, became a moving canvas of fluid movement for projected images, and brought the images to life using the highs and lows of the bowl to imitate the hills and valleys of local landscape. Eudlo heART Skatepark, a contemporary street art project engaging professional and aspiring artists, created an art piece in the heart of Eudlo and forged a new collective of young artists already creating ongoing commissions and works for sale. Animating Spaces is an innovative, three-year state-wide multi-arts project that will revitalise and celebrate significant or unusual spaces within fifteen regional communities through locally-driven arts activities and events. Communities have the opportunity to re-imagining their town, employ local artists and creatives, build capacity, develop cultural project management skills, receive mentoring and support and funding assistance to present three arts projects.
