Mandurah gets creative at Stretch Fest 2018 | photos

Mandurah showed just how creative it can be at the 2018 Stretch Arts Festival.

The annual event features local and state artists to transform the entertainment precinct into a hub of light, colour and culture.

In its 18th year, organisers worked hard to slowly build the festival’s profile as one of the state’s leading arts events.

Festival were able to take part in  free art, music, food, markets, performances and outdoor events.

Another highlight of the festival was the Stretch Hydrodome Sound Project.

The multi-sensory artwork was created using “cutting-edge” 360 degree film and featured an eerie watery soundscape mixed with a unique dance.

The community of Mandurah and Peel, alongside artists David Carson, Bernadette Lewis and Justin Wiggan, contributed to bringing the piece to life.

This year, a giant illuminated puppet was a key attraction thanks to a partnership between String Symphony and Mandurah Performing Arts Centre.

String Symphony is a large-scale, interactive performance that uses puppetry to explore connection, community and collaboration.

The festival continues on Sunday.
