Community Development with Wyong Council

Community Development with Wyong Council

Client: Central Coast Council 

Where: Wyong - Central Coast 

What: Art Pharmacy Consulting has been working with the Central Coast Council and  a performance group for the Wyong Lakes Festival. The theme of the festival is 'Folklore'. 

The performance group has been working one-on-one with local community groups, using their stories of religious and historical significance to inform their performance work for the Wyong Lakes Festival. These groups include the Maori community, where the legend of the demigod 'Maui' will be used as inspiration for the final performance. 

As part of the festival program, Art Pharmacy Consulting facilitated two workshops for local creatives. In collaboration with the performance group, Toukely locals learnt about theatre and costume practices as well as creating costumes for the festival in a costume making workshop. These workshops enabled the members of these community groups to be involved in the making of the costumes of the final work!
