2020 Gunning Arts Festival goes online

With the physical Gunning Arts Festival postponed to 2021, we congratulate the organisers who thought outside the box and delivered a very successful online Festival this year. Art was photographed and exhibited online, plus videos of musicians, authors, performers and workshops were uploaded. Among the videos was also a workshop on making hand-felted wool and silk scarves and a tour of the historical display at Pye Cottage!


The Gunning Arts Festival Committee Chair Michelle Storey said, “The Gunning Arts Festival committee and the groups organising events for the Festival are very enthusiastic to make the online Gunning Festival an amazing success, and we have relevant expertise within the group to pull it together technically.” Festival Patron Margarita Georgiadis said, “Australia is facing a huge health and economic challenge at the moment. I think an online Festival has the potential to bring enormous cultural benefit to the community, as well as helping artists who are struggling so much with many events being cancelled.”


Much of the content from the festival is still available at www.gunningartsfestival.com and well worth a look. We look forward to next year’s festival.
