Ten artists share their memories
The Metro Tunnel Creative Program and Midsumma Festival 2021 are collaborating to showcase the strength and adaptability of our artists and culture makers. The art that came before us is what gave so much strength to our communities to be where we are today. The last year has been tough for our ‘Arts World’ and we need to remind ourselves of our roots.
We invited artists to create a visual image in response to their favourite Midsumma Festival memory, their own personal “Midsumma moment” something that connected to their very core. After over 30 years of festivals, there are a lot of moments, both private and shared.
To commemorate our history, let us come together to take a trip down Memory Lane.

SILENT DISCO - Dance, dance, dance!
The Metro Tunnel Creative Program wants to take you on a silent disco tour of the NOLA (North of La Trobe Street) precinct with Guru Dudu. Headphones (COVID-safe of course) will be provided so you can groove along to a mix of uplifting favourites from the 70's, 80's, 90's & 00's. You’ll shimmy past the outdoor exhibition “Memory Lane”, part of Midsumma Festival, on Franklin Street, boogie down laneways and sashay in the streets, starting at the State Library.
Come light-handed and wear comfortable shoes – lycra and sequins optional but recommended!
