the indirect Object

Award-winning arts group the Indirect Object is coming to Nelson Place in Williamstown this school holidays, with three night time sessions of their playful lighting activations.

Visit Commonwealth Reserve from Thursday 4 July to Saturday 6 July (from 5pm to 8pm) and enjoy interactive lighting experiences set against the beautiful backdrop of waterfront Williamstown.

Hobsons Bay Mayor and Strand Ward Councillor Jonathon Marsden said that this free, family-friendly event will surprise and delight people of all ages.

“This is a great opportunity to pull on those beanies and jackets and bring the whole family down to enjoy some winter fun,” Cr Marsden said.

“You can strike a pose at the neon photo booth, revel in the company of giant luminous firefly puppets and get crafty with lantern making workshops for all ages.

“There will also be music at the rotunda for all to enjoy.”

Strand Ward Councillor Peter Hemphill said that this event was designed to encourage residents to shake off the winter blues and enjoy winter in Williamstown.

“Some people associate Williamstown with summertime ice creams on the beach but there is plenty to love about Williamstown in the winter,” Cr Hemphill said.

“I encourage our residents to come out and enjoy a night in one of the most spectacular locations in Melbourne – there’s plenty on offer for both the young and the young at heart.

“While you’re out, support our local businesses by indulging in a meal at one of the many excellent restaurants on Nelson Place.”
