Farrerdise: Celebrate Neighbour Day in Farrer
Sunday, 26 March at 4-6pm
Farrer Park, near Scout Hall and Adventure Playground
In collaboration with Farrer Neighbourhood Watch Committee, Woden Arts invites you to Farrerdise in the Farrer Park. Enjoy connecting with the Farrer community, bring a picnic blanket, listen to live music, participate in free clay workshops, eat a sausage, and relax with your neighbours celebrating Neighbour Day.
Live music: Pachamama
Celebrate Latin American style with Pachamama. Pachamama, meaning Mother Earth in Quechua, is a Canberra quintet of accomplished musicians who all sing with a shared love of Latin American popular folk music. . They will inspire you with music both familiar and strange, speaking of love, longing and the fragile earth. The band includes: Cicilia Kemezys on flutes & melodica, Jorge Bontes on guitar & vocals, Marisol Pacheco on charango & percussion & vocals, Tony Hunter on mandolin & bouzouki and Mathew Armstong on bass. Their music weaves the textures, colours and cultural richness of South America with 4 part vocal harmonies and a colourful platter of exotic folk instruments: the charango, tres, guitar, flute, zampona, mandolin, bouzouki and percussion.
Balloon sculptures: Giggly Wiggly
Returning again to Farrerdise, we’re delighted to have Chloe from Giggly Wiggly. A balloon twisting artist who creates amazing sculptures of animals. She will be present making her balloon creations to give away.
