This new projection is the next iteration of the highly-successful legacy installation Wakulda: a cultural tourism attraction created/developed as part of the Bicentenary Event Program in April 2020. Designed in partnership with creative design studio Esem Projects and projected onto the town’s Historic Courthouse, Wakulda is an ongoing immersive, nightly, 10-minute production that denotes the critical heritage and culture stories from both an Aboriginal and European perspective. And now, the new program will feature a jam-packed schedule of musicians, dancers, performers, artists, and writers lighting up the Historic Courthouse in Port Macquarie’s CBD.
This project receives funding from the NSW Government through the
Regional Events Acceleration Fund, which supports the development of unique and high-impact tourism and events infrastructure that helps boost local economies, create jobs, and ensure visitors to regional NSW have unforgettable experiences that encourage repeat visitation.
