Avoca Chinese Garden Launch – Small Towns Transformations
11 October, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In May 2013 five small towns across Victoria began a journey of creative change. Each town received $350,000 for a significant artistic project with lasting legacy that would transform their town. Small Town Transformations is presented by Regional Arts Victoria on behalf of the Victorian Government.
Avoca’s Small Town Transformation culminates with the creation of a garden that seeks to address the silence and acknowledge the significant historical contribution of the many Chinese people who have been a part of this community since the 1850s. “The Garden of Fire and Water” will be a constant reminder of our shared heritage with the Chinese community and the catalyst for change. The launch event will take place largely in the garden and surrounds and be one of contemplation, learning and art.
