We’re currently looking for up to 8 aspiring artists aged 14 – 25 who would like to join the project team for CITYLIGHTS ~ 街の灯 – an art in the public realm project connecting two city sites, The Rocks, Sydney and Yokohama, Japan. If you’re interested in dance, movement, performance, sound, projection and/or interactive installation we want you. The first development session is this Saturday, so get in quick or you’ll miss out!
