Vinyl Revival

 Posted: 20-07-2017

For years in the lead up to the Wangaratta Jazz Festival, hundreds of school children and community members have been able to create their own masterpiece to display in shop windows over the festival weekend. 2016’s hugely successful “I’m in the Band” project resulted in over 600 creations from a combined 11 schools plus many more community members!

The Rural City of Wangaratta, alongside project facilitator David Godkin and the Jazz Festival Committee are excited to announce this year’s project - Vinyl Revival! Teachers and students will be able to interpret one of many Jazz or Blues song titles onto their own Vinyl template, which will then be displayed around the Wangaratta CBD during the festival. Jazz and Blues Festival Chairman, Paul Squires says he’s “delighted to have the community involved again in the festival in an engaging and creative way”.

The project will be officially rolled out next week following a professional development workshop held at Wangaratta West Primary School. The brains behind the program, local volunteer and retired art teacher, David Godkin said “this year we are aiming for maximum participation from the schools for a maximum impact in the community!” The workshop, also facilitated by David, will provide teachers and alike some background as well as an opportunity to put their creative hats on and create their own Vinyl, before taking it back into the classroom.
