Lighting up the silo with a futuristic Geraldton tale.
On the evening of Friday 15 November a dramatic tale of Geraldton’s future, imagined through the eyes of artists and local high school students, was projected onto the CBH silo at the Port, with a soundtrack simulcast on Radio Mama 100.5FM.
The Luminous Dreams project was developed by UWA and the Australian Urban Design Research Centre with the generous support of the City of Greater Geraldton.
A fictional narrative was created by Western Australian author and UWA graduate, Annabel Smith, as a guide for the film. The film’s vision and sound were provided by artists Sohan Ariel Hayes and Cat Hope (both UWA alumni) whilst Mid-West artists Rose Holdaway and Anthea Da Silva coordinated the students’ contributions including work from:
The curator of the film exhibition and project manager was Dr Anthony Duckworth-Smith, Assistant Professor at the Australian Urban Design Research Centre.
The project was part of the UWA Gives Back Centenary celebrations in rural and regional areas of the state and was made possible with the assistance of the Geraldton Port Authority, CBH Group and Yamaji Art.
UWA Gives Back was part of the University’s 2013 Centenary where faculties have been taking the celebration of a century of achievement to the people of regional Western Australia. Many in rural and regional WA have had a long relationship with the University and we gratefully acknowledge the support provided over the decades.
