Erin’s Junction Arts Festival Itinerary

August 24 2012

​Lucky me - I have an extra long weekend to get immersed in Junction Arts Festival 2012. And looking at the programme, I have decided I need to be smart with my time. So, I have devised a plan of action for an action packed Friday! Here is the plan of attack – maybe it might help you?

I will kick start the morning with a little stroll in the rooftop garden in Paterson Street east (one part of Guerrilla Gardening), and maybe I can pick up some fresh produce, if not, just enjoy the fresh air and the view.

Then I might get up close and personal with a stranger over brunch to make a promise (The Pact) – all via non-verbal communication – the mind already boggles.

After collecting a much needed hot chocolate from Cocobean, I will be on my way to York Town square to see one instalment of Stompin Youth Choreographic Project. Perhaps it will inspire some moves later in the day!

I feel it may then be time to take things down tempo for an hour or two, at Sawtooth, checking out some of the quality exhibitions now showing for JAF 2012 (think Breathe, All Together Now, What Lies Beneath? and Parallel Worlds)

Now, I’m not normally a brass band fan, but I think might make a bee line for the St John Street bus stop to catch the ‘Battle on the Bus’ by Red Brigade Versus Blue Brigade! Maybe I will become a brass band fan…

I feel I may have my work cut out for me, yet I am going to challenge myself to see if I can find Mako sketching up a storm somewhere around the festival, or one of the mysterious Rabbit’s posters to try to understand what on earth The Loveliness Principle is…

And then I think I am supposed to be somewhere, oh yes, Somewhere Else at the QVMAG Royal Park for Tasdance. Can’t wait to see this work, after seeing their recent show, Voltage!

Any energy remaining will be well utilised in The Junc Room, unwinding from the week that has been with local and interstate bands, and getting prepared for the weekend that continues to be Junction Arts Festival 2012!
