Nati Frinj Biennale
Dates: 30 Oct 2015 - 1 Nov 2015
Address: Nati Frinj, Main Street, Natimuk, Victoria 3409
The Nati Frinj is a three day biennial festival drawing on the talents of artists and community support from the small Western Victorian (Wimmera) town of Natimuk.
The Frinj has been running since 2000 and has forged a reputation for making outstanding, innovative and often audacious art. The fact that this festival comes from such a small rural community is even more unusual.
Some Frinj projects, such as Space and Place, Highly Strung and 2015 Art Pumping Action have been (and are) at the forefront of artistic creation in Australia.
This year's major project is Rising Lights, a complete town projection work from the town that pioneered such work in Australia, with local artists mentored by Cindi Drennan from Illuminart.
The Nati Frinj showcases the talents of local artists, and invites other artists to come and play.
These projects have demonstrated the broad artistic skills and willingness to collaborate that is a feature of Natimuk's arts community.
As well a highlight projects, the Frinj program includes the community celebration street parade of The Hay and Thespian Mardi Gras, an extensive music, visual and performing arts program, culinary experiences, subversive art attacks and dancing.
The Nati Frinj is run by ACT Natimuk and a group of dedicated volunteers.
