EVENTS: GIANT LEAP PROGRAM LAUNCH

20 Jul 2019 | 3.00pm - 7.00pm

This July, Casula Powerhouse will present GIANT LEAP, a multi-arts program designed to harness the high levels of interest generated by the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing mission in 1969. The 1969 moon-landing captured imaginations around the globe, ranging from the great wonder of science and technology to the creative expression from artists, filmmakers and writers of the time. It has become part of our popular culture in Australia, with pride taken in the involvement of Australians in the event, and had a long-lasting impact around the world.

The program ‘launches’ with an event on 20 July from 3pm- 7pm.
*Exhibitions launch and viewing: 9am-7pm
*Musical performances - songs about the moon: 3pm - 7pm
*Kids workshop-wear or make your own space costume and Space Disco: 4pm-6pm
*Moon viewing with Macarthur Astronomical Society: 6-7pm


The GIANT LEAP program includes the exhibitions HIGH LOOM, a large-scale installation in the Turbine Hall by Lisa Sammut; Memories of the Moon Landing in the Marsden Gallery; Astronaut in the Switch Gallery; Future in the Upper Turbine Gallery; and Under the Same Moon in the Hopper Gallery, as well as fun, interactive activities in the Kids Gallery. The GIANT LEAP program also includes One Small Step, a satellite exhibition at the Liverpool Regional Museum.
