As part of the Arts festival through three narrated shows; Jackson, Franclemont, Kovacevska, Mine, Mano Epps, Flemming and Wright each observe and depict sentiment of society channeling an experience through a vibrant personal connection with the audience. A thread of hope becomes contagious via colour, sound, smell and direct interaction, aiming to inspire the viewer to open a new chapter in their own book. Free workshops run throughout.
