Horizon Festival - Online for 2020 // 28 Aug - 6 Sep 2020

Words + Ideas

Our Words + Ideas stream featured a series of panel discussions, spoken word and conversations, creating space for thoughtful discussion and the sharing of ideas.

Our June Words + Ideas stream featured Art x Activism, an in-conversation with leading artists working across mental health, climate change, cultural resurgence and social and political justice, discussing art as a catalyst for change. Watch it back here.

Another highlight of our Words + Ideas stream was Listening in the Wild, a series of immersive soundscapes exploring environments across the Sunshine Coast that were produced live and streamed for listeners to engage with at home. These experiences were created by artists Lyndon Davis and Leah Barclay as transient listening experiences interwoven with Kabi Kabi stories. Listening in the Wild comprised of three separate experiences, streamed live online and also available post event for audiences to access anywhere at any time. The locations included virtual sound walks through Eudlo Creek National Park, a journey along the Maroochy River and an ocean expedition from Mooloolaba Beach. Listen back here.
