Over three days, a host of experimental artists push the boundaries of what we expect art to be. From Music, poetry performances, experimental film screenings and visual art, be amazed by the range and scope of events on offer, and participate in our music collaboration project, acousitc sessions and workshops. There will be an open mic for poets, and bo barrier between you and the artists.
Artists include David Ethix, Manus O'Pus, Chels Bells, Conwae Twitter, Brentley Frazer, Noisework Collective, Megan Bernard, Kalju Tonuma, Meaghan Shelton, M.Perkins, C.Galletly, H.Byrne, F.Gooch, Hamish Danks Brown, Roberto Vagg, Danny Mcgirr, plus more.
$25/20 per day, and your day ticket entitles you to the evening concert as well. Best value ticket on the horizon. Bring a picnic, a blanket and grab a spot on the grass for this great new experimental arts event. Admission is strictly by BOOKING ONLY. No tickets at the door.
Artistic directors and event managers Geoffrey Datson and Annette Hughes have run the event since 2011 at their Greenroom studio in Cooroy, and have decided to move the established Christmas/new year dates to September to coincide with Horizon Festival of Arts & Culture. Most importantly - DOOFWORD provides a safe space to experiment (and to possibly fail) within a supportive collegiate millieu.
The theme for this year's DOOFWORD is COLLABORATION. Several of the artists will be exhibiting new works that have emerged from previous collaborations... poets with experimental film makers, an Iranian refugee activist/poet spoken word work with musicians, light sculptors with live electronica performance.
