Over the first weekend of February, the Grampians welcomed a record number of people to the Grampians Music Festival. Artists from all over Australia travelled to our little corner of the world to grace the community with great music. The Ararat FReeZA committee partnered with the Grampians Music Festival to celebrate and showcase Australian artists through a work of art displayed at the festival.
The Ararat FReeZA Committee, Prizm, worked as a group to create a mural dedicated to the artists playing at the festival. A spray-painted landscape, flourished with images of the musicians performing at the festival and Australian animals to celebrate local culture. The mural was complete with 3D speakers that spread musical notes across the landscape.
FReeZA is a Victorian Government initiative that supports young Victorians to get involved in their community by planning and running drug, smoke and alcohol-free music and cultural events for other young people.
Prizm is a group of secondary school students that come together on a weekly basis to discuss how they can create or take part in events for young people. Prizm is always open to new members who are passionate about creating events for young people.
