Yack Community Garden - Winter Solstice Pizza Night

20190307_130716.jpg

Come along at: 4pm for kids rock painting activities (prepare for a mess). Or from 5pm for pizza baking.

Join us at the Yack Community Garden for the annual solstice pizza night. The winter solstice is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs each year in June as the Earth orbits the Sun. It is the shortest day of the year and the longest night; and the point at which the earth begins her long, slow turn towards the light.

The solstice has been observed for many thousands of years and it’s a wonderful time of year to retreat inwards and reflect on the wonders of nature.

Many traditional cultures used winter as a time to slow down and reconnect with the natural world.

It’s a great time to gather friends together for a hearty, warming meal to recognise and feel part of

this ancient tradition.

Bring the kids at 4pm to participate in painting some fun rock art (wear old clothes).

Please bring a pizza or anything you fancy to bake in the oven and any other food to share. BYO drinks, plates, chair and cutlery. BYO musical instruments.

Participation by donation ($10 or what you can afford)

The Bikes of Wrath

bikes-of-wrath_Small.jpg

An Arts Yackandandah - Flickside event.

Multi-award winning documentary about five Australians undertaking a 2600km bicycle journey through the United States. The trip honours the westward migration undertaken by the Joad family in the John Steinbeck novel, The Grapes of Wrath. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of the human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck's seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary series filled with adventure, literature, music and man.

Time: 7.15pm

Location: Yackandandah Court House

Tickets: Arts Yackandandah Members $15. Non-members $20

Bookings: Through the Try Booking link on https://arts.yackandandah.com/ front page.
