River Festival Tank Art and Accessible Transport

As a supporter of the Shoalhaven River Festival to be held this week, Shoalhaven City Council is collaborating with many partners to support the festival by providing accessible transport and supporting the festival in the Artzone area.

In the week leading up to River Festival, Shoalhaven Regional Gallery Nowra is working on Tank Art with street artist Anthony Jones, thanks to funding from the Shoalhaven River Festival.  Anthony will paint two concrete tanks delivered outside the gallery by Bennett’s Concrete. Anthony’s work is one of a series of river themed sculptures as part of the Flood Marker project funded by Festivals Australia.

Tank Art is a collaboration between River Festival ArtZone and Shoalhaven Regional Gallery.

The Tank Art project is a sculptural expression of the relationship between the River and the people of the Shoalhaven. Using this theme artists, craftspeople, and community members are building, weaving painting, sculpting and lighting the 'markers' of community and the stories of the River. Community partners include Shoalhaven Historical Society, Nowra Men’s Shed, Care South and River Watch.

The Tank Art sculptures will be displayed in Gallery forecourt until mid-January.

To make it easier for people to travel to the Shoalhaven River Festival, Shoalhaven City Council in partnership with Transport NSW are providing an accessible shuttle service for the duration of the event. The shuttle will service Bomaderry Train Station, Nowra CBD and Stockland.

This service is available for everyone for a gold coin donation.  Please find the timetable on the Shoalhaven River Festival www.shoalhavenriverfestival.com.au.

Mayor Amanda Findley said, “By offering accessible transport, we hope to encourage everyone to come to the festival to park and ride.  We hope this will make it easier for people using walking aids, people who use a wheelchair and parents with prams.”
