As you know, Mountain to Mouth is an 80km extreme arts walk.
The 2018 theme, Earth, is reflected in all art installations along the walk.
Each of the Songline Stations represent the local community in which the Stations are located.
The Gathering of the Elders signals the beginning of Mountain to Mouth and the unveiling the ephemeral lead sculpture, Canoe, created by US based artist Leslie Pearson, in collaboration with Ocean Grove based artist Kerrie Bedson
At the Lara RSL, artist Emma Anna is creating Sol Yantra a colourful mandala made from the bounties of harvest.
Canoe will enter into Central Geelong and intersect with Geelong After Dark, a night of edgy arts in unexpected places. The second Ceremony, Gathering of the City, will herald the end of the first day. Join in as choirs and dancers welcome Canoe into the heart of Geelong.
Beth Arnold has developed a site-specific project developed for Point Lonsdale village, a meditation where the land meets the sea.
Proud locals with a deep history of community service, Ocean Grove will be the site of artist Anamaria Gomez Correal’s Blue Gold an ephemeral installation of hanging ice drops, gradually melting into the ocean at Ocean Grove
Canoe will arrive at the Barwon Heads foreshore, where it will be set alight, as part of Gathering of the Elements, before being sent out to the sea from the mouth of the Barwon River.
