Go! Glenroy Go! by Liz Walker

Using precut wooden figures that represent each community member, participants are invited to paint, decorate and dress 'themselves' using natural materials, recycled fabrics and embellishments. Once completed the figures will be joined together in a bright festoon representing the community of Glenroy.

re(lu)minescence by Madz Rehorek and Tito Ambyo

Journalists and artists Madz and Tito have been researching, interviewing and collaborating with Glenroy residents to explore the stories and the journeys of the peoples and places that make Glenroy what it is today.

They will present a series of paste-ups and an outdoor exhibition to give visitors to Glenroy Festival a glimpse of the richness and diversity of the suburb.

We look forward to seeing you in Glenroy.
