Welcome to FUSE Digital
FUSE, the City of Darebin’s multi-arts festival, is changing direction. Due to Melbourne’s extended lockdown, we can’t hold our events in person. That’s why we’re launching FUSE Digital, an online celebration of our local artist and performers.
On 4 September, FUSE Digital kicks off with Ganbu Gulin: One Mob, Darebin’s culturally inclusive annual event that celebrates and recognises First Nations peoples. Join us for a Welcome to Country with Uncle Bill Nicholson and a live streamed performance by acclaimed local musician Pirritu. There’s also a screening of our documentary film about Darebin’s decision to stop observing January 26 as Australia Day in favour of Ganbu Gulin.
Other highlights include:
Spaced (9 September), an online performance and zine led by Disabled artist Jess Kapuscinski Evans. Spaced is a cry for solidarity between members of the disability community and those who identify as D/deaf.
The Market Record (17-19 September), a solo audio tour guide about shopping, communities and markets, designed to be heard as you shop at the Preston Market.
FUSE Digital. Locally Unexpected. 4-19 September.
