We’re gathering online – please drop in

We’re gathering online – please drop in

Friday 17 July 2020

The festival is progressing full steam ahead as we prepare to launch our ONLINE program on 30 July.

Planning for online presentation was our insurance policy to guarantee festival delivery. In truth, we really thought gathering would be okay by 9 September and we still wanted to see you all here.

Until this week, we had hoped to present a handful of live events as part of the program. We also expected we’d be inviting you all to watch the livestream events with us from the LibraryMuseum (and possibly feeling a little silly about our early decision to go online). It’s very clear that now is not the time to be planning physical gatherings of any description.

The WAM 2020 program is now a fully online program. We can’t wait to announce it. Our line-up of guests is second-to-none and we’re thrilled to be bringing them to you, wherever you can tune in from.

Meanwhile, we’re supporting a couple of online storytelling projects that celebrate our local area. For local residents, this is a chance to share your personal stories of living in The Neighbourhood and perhaps share some of our local Secrets of the Streets.

For those of you who don’t have the privilege of living in the area (okay we’re biased, but it’s true!), as the projects build over the coming months, they’ll offer little windows into our part of the world.

Make sure you RSVP for the program launch, it's the first special part of our Past Lives/Present Tense themed festival.

See you in cyberspace soon!
