MORNINGTON artist John Trebilco was busy sketching the activities he saw around him as the community hall in Verdon Street, Dromana became the focal point for two days of live performances as part of the Drift Festival.
The inaugural 11-day festival – a “vehicle for creativity” – was sponsored by Mornington Peninsula Shire and included theatre, music, outdoor installations, film, writing and art projections.
The artistic offerings based at the Dromana hall were named Lift, a collaboration of the Peninsula Culture Collective (Dreamhouse Theatre Company, Living Culture, MP Music Network, Peninsula Studio Trail, Peninsula Writers Club and Spark Productions).
Trebilco, pictured right with Living Culture coordinator Lionel Lauch, is one of the Peninsula Studio Trail artists who will open their studios to the public over the 14-15 May weekend (details: peninsulastudiotrailinc.org).
Living Culture describes its mission as being “to engage, empower and educate about the importance of keeping Aboriginal culture alive”.
