LUMINOUS STREETS was the first project of the The Edge of Us which I have visioned and am artistic directing in parntership with co-artists Jeannie Haughton and Mary Sullivan as well as the communities of 5 tiny towns on the water's edge, 1.5hrs outside Melbourne: Pioneer Bay, Grantville, Tenby Point, Corinella, Coronet Bay. Five artists - one in each town - worked with community members and children at the Bass Valley Primary School to create light based artworks. The artworks were then assembled in 5 tiny parks most on the waters edge and launched with a smoking ceremony by Naweet Carolyn Briggs. Driven by 200 re-chargable batteries, 600 LED bulbs and nearly 1000m of electrical wire, the project involved over 500 participants. The galleries were celebrated by many hundreds of viewers on their opening night - April 8 2017 - then lit up for 5 consecutive nights with a battery recharge system involving many community members. THE EDGE OF US is a successful recipient of a Small Town Transformations grant, a Victorian Government Initiative managed by Regional Arts Victoria.
