Welcome to the 100th edition of Divercity. With longer days (and hopefully warmer weather), we’ll all have more time to enjoy the great outdoors.
Paint in the Park at Gasworks is a three-hour out paint outdoor ‘competition’ over two weekends. It’s all about participation and inspiration, but there’s also remuneration with big cash prizes.
Also outdoors is a festival of everyday bike riding, the aptly named Tour de Moray (celebrating the spanking new bike track along Moray Street). There will be loads of fun, a scavenger hunt, pop-up attractions and free bike tune ups – you’ll be dinging your bells in delight.
Get down to Fitzroy Street for Luminous, a pop-up art attraction with visuals by five creative outfits. Marvel at the works of PluginHUMAN, Tom Gerrard, John Fish, filmmakers Nick Kozakis and Carl Allison, and recycled nylon sculpture by Elizabeth West. It will be Fitzluminous.
There’s also highlights from the local Senior’s Festival that will inspire swinging, singing and giggling.
Oh, and we look at Divercity covers over the years since we first started in 2001.
Enjoy. And thanks for participating.
