Why GROUNDED and what is the purpose of curating an Arts Festival for the people and visitors of Yorke Peninsula? Well, YP’s ground is ancient, significant, and productive. Shack owners escape to the YP as it has a grounding and calming effect on one’s mood. The community sets its roots in YP’s ground and works hard to produce excellent things for our people. Our ground is fertile in practical and figurative ways. Art is often healing, inclusive and ground-breaking; it keeps us grounded.
The GROUNDED - YP Art Festival being held 11-20 August, seeks to inspire and grow the celebration of the arts on Guuranda, Yorke Peninsula by nurturing our creatives: traditional owners the Narungga People, residents, and shack owners. By offering numerous platforms for important storytelling and expression, we can connect with our visitors.
