The great big, glorious sound of community.

Castlemaine is home to three unique music-making groups, each open to anyone, of any ability: CorkerOrchestra, Mainesong choir and the Brazilian forró group, Brazazul. 

Under the musical direction of national living treasure, Wendy Rowlands, the three groups come together for one night and perform publicly at an end of year concert.

Ag Fab: From Paddock to Catwalk

4:00PM SUNDAY 16 JUNE | IN THE YURT

Screening followed by Filmmaker Q&A

What do women on farms do after a hard day working on the land? 

They get out the glue gun, the riveter, the sewing machine, and create extraordinary garments to enter into the national Ag Artwear competition. With its roots in New Zealand, the Ag Art movement came to Australia in 2000 and was an immediate, spectacular success. It has been wowing crowds at regional field days ever since.

“If you weren’t interested in tractors, you could come and see the fashion instead.”
Model for 10 parades.

Ag Fab: From Paddock to Catwalk takes us behind the scenes of the final competition, held at Elmore, and explores the legacy of loss in rural communities.
