FLOAT Small Town Transformation @ Lake Tyers Beach

THE Arts project on Lake Tyers


OK. So what is Float?
FLOAT is a project to build a floating artists studio resident on Lake Tyers.  The pontoon style habitat will in itself be a creative effort by many of the people in the district and will allow imaginative and sensitive work to be generated "at one" with our beautiful lake.  FLOAT will sponsor a wide range of activities, and provide a focal point for local people to raise the awareness of the arts in the Lakes Entrance and Lake Tyers Beach area.  It will literally provide a platform for promotion of the Arts in East Gippsland. It is a part of the the Small Towns Transformation project, and is part of a collection of six energetic towns with inspired artistic communities spread right across Victoria.

Sounds interesting?  Well there is a FLOAT ART@LTB Facebook Group with an active discussion session that you can join.  The key mover and shaker in this project is Andrea Lane  who has been one of the very active contributors to the success of the FROUTVILLE events.  These highly popular events have been laying the foundation for a number of years now, and fostering our local Arts communities.

The measure of the support from the community can be seen from this photograph taken off the balcony of the Tavern, capturing all the people who attended the launch of the project on 17th September, 2016.
