The Walkley Foundation presents events throughout the year to encourage excellence in press photography, including workshops, exhibitions and slide nights.
Once one of Sydney’s more infamous suburbs, Redfern has emerged as a key creative hub and for this one special night as part of Vivid 2013 the MEAA courtyard will be transformed by light, colour, music and image in conjunction with the amazing TaikOz and The Digital Shamans as they present the cutting edge visual, dance and light displays of the Origin of O. Imagine the heart thumping, primal beats of the taiko drum in sync with soundscapes created with digital devices. Origin of O explore the many incarnations of spirituality and where it fits in the digital realm of our times.
Come and join Australia’s creative community as we present a range of visual, dance and light displays from Marlena Dali and Benny O, Audiosauce accompanied by Adrian Wells from The Flyers and Tablatronics by Tokyo Love-In, Prabhu.
This is a fabulous opportunity to embrace one of Sydney’s most diverse and developing neighbourhoods.
The night will also involve delicious food from Cantina Mobil and the Veggie Patch as well as a pop up bar.
