Song and Dance Photographic Exhibition
Fri 09 Nov - Sun 09 Dec
LAUNCH: 6PM FRI 9 NOV
This exhibition is a Sister Cities collaboration between Cairns and Riga, Latvia, to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of Latvia’s independence.
Song has been a longstanding tradition in Latvia, celebrated every five years in Riga with one of the largest amateur choral events in the world, the Latvian Song and Dance Festival. For this exhibition, Latvian images have been selected from a competition held by members of the two Riga photographic clubs. Images from Cairns have been provided mainly by members of the Cairns Photographic Society and are accompanied by an audio-visual presentation by Ricky Beresford and Greta Evangelista.
The exhibition opened first in Latvia on August 31 and now comes to Cairns to celebrate something our two cities have in common – a love for song and dance.
Open: 9am – 4.30pm weekdays, 10am – 2.30pm weekend
- Cost: Free
- Venue: Tank 4
