In a new community-based biennial celebration, the Art & Industry Festival will build local identity, champion local assets and inspire interaction between local artists, residents, industry and businesses.
Motivated by the local industrial resources of electricity, oil, petrol, sea water, blue stone, glass and transportation, the inaugural Art & Industry Festival will culminate in multiple art presentations and activities throughout unique places in the Hobsons Bay area, running across ten days.
Working in partnership with Hobsons Bay City Council, the Art & Industry Festival was instigated by a long-term Newport resident, Donna Jackson and her company Hubcap Productions.
The inaugural Art & Industry Festival will run from Friday November 18 to Sunday November 27 at Hobsons Bay. The full program will be revealed on Friday November 9.
