Forest Collective is a collective of diverse and talented artists that formed in early 2009 to create inter-disciplinary performances and collaborations. They aim to create dialogues between disparate disciplines that focus on freedom and expression. The collective has had a variety of performance experiences, ranging from the National Symphony Orchestra to contemporary and community music ensembles. Forest Collective has been a part of Guildford Lane Gallery’s Wednesday Project; developed new theatre for the Western Edge Explosion Project Phoenix Youth Centre, under the mentorship of Yvonne Virsik; has performed on 3MBS 103.5FM Summer Score and Live at the Convent series; has presented a concert series in 2009, including performances for the Music Faculty of the VCA, and for 350.org, highlighting climate change as a part of their International festival and is currently engaged in its 2010 concert series.
This will be the official launch for Forest Collective and the final performance for its 2010 concert series, so please come by and stay for a drink at the reception at the Gallery bar after the performance!
