Cloudstreet, that wonderful,critically acclaimed piece of Australian theatre is coming to the Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre. Set in post-war Perth, Cloudstreet follows the fortunes and changing relationships between two families-the Lambs and Pickles-who inhabit the same rambling house.

With its mysteries, chance encounters and fate filled story Cloudstreet will break your heart in one moment and make you cry from laughing in the other. This is a special night in the theatre that is not to be missed.

In 15 DAYS Wagga Wagga based photographer and artist Christopher Orchard undertook a journey of 2000km's documenting the things he saw and the way he saw them.

TUNED CITY INFRASTRUCTURE: MAKING YOUR CITY SING
In this case, Vic McEwan has designed and manufactured a series of Safety Bollards that are tuned to a western 12 tone tuning system. In the coming months the Safety Bollards will be installed in a local park serving both the practical purpose of Safety Bollard and the added bonus of being a musical instrument opening up opportunities for exploration, play and early music education.
This seminar talk will have particular appeal to designers of all kinds, looking at sustainable design issues, and thematic series of related design projects. It will also directly appeal to those interested in public art projects – where the creative outcome is entwined with council or other community imperatives - musicians, artists, and a whole range of people that like hitting metal with hammers or sticks to make MUSIC! It will raise a number of issues regarding art and its manufacture – the nature of collaborative art, its production, the intention of high level community art outcomes, social sculpture, music and education.
