FUSE is committed to showcasing all the talent, creativity and art that the community of Darebin has to offer.
Part of its Autumn 2023 program is FUSE@Large, an open access, multi-arts program where any artist, maker and
creator can promote their event under the umbrella that is FUSE so long as it is happening in Darebin during the
festival. This program provides opportunities to activate careers for artists, whether they’re just starting out or
continuing to grow their audience.
This Autumn, Darebin locals and creatives alike will bear witness to performances never experienced before. From
art exhibitions to live music performances, festival-goers will be spoilt for choice.
In the exhibition Being Keepers: Ecology of Home, Ryoko shares the process of turning a refuge in an emergency
to a home through her decomposing and everyday life practices. After Ryoko was displaced from her home in
Fukushima due to the 2011 nuclear accident in Japan, she came to Australia as a transnational environmental
evacuee. Now in this open house, she shows how her decomposition practice draws from her cultural heritage through
the medium of her red yarn-based art practice, which is informed by ikebana, a Japanese flower arrangement. Visit
her at this open house in Preston from 11-13 March or online from
11-26 March.
FUSE@Large is hosting this year’s Melbourne Ukulele Festival
(MUF). Bringing the magic over three days, MUF is the longest
running ukulele festival in Australia, inspiring artists and hosting great
workshops centred in High Street, Northcote. From Friday 17 to
Sunday 19 March, MUF has an artist line up to rave about, including
Dead Man’s Uke and The Thin White Ukes (pictured right).
Bundoora Homestead Art Centre presents the A1 Darebin Art Salon 2023, returning for its fourth iteration and
featuring over 150 artists who live, work or study in the City of Darebin. This major community art prize and exhibition
allows artists at any stage of their journey to exhibit work in a public art gallery. 15 March to 24 June.
Celebrating her hit new single ‘This Mess’ is local talent, Shannen James. After the success of her sold out debut
tour, Shannen has performed alongside much-loved Australian artists such as the DMA’s, Confidence Man and Vera
Blue. Friday 17 March at the Northcote Social Club
In the words of Kath and Kim, Look at Moi: 80s Prom is an interactive
themed life drawing class where participants can be the muse or the artist.
Held at Last Peek Studio, the 80s themed art class is turning life drawing
on its head. A $5 donation includes, food and materials are all supplied as
well as a flamboyant set design aimed to intrigue and delight. Please note,
there is no nudity in this class. Saturday 18 March.
