UnScene Festival, June 14-28, 2012

Artwork: Maris Depers
UnScene is a two week collaboration and celebration of creativity and the arts in the Illawarra – past, present and future! Helter Smelter and Steel City Sound have joined forces to shine a spotlight on the diversity of the various communities that continue to survive and thrive in this steel town of ours, and give you a glimpse of the often un-seen, un-heard Wollongong that you find when you scratch the surface and look into the heart underneath the city. 10 days, 8 venues, 10 events (8 being all ages) that will showcase a mass of local underground talent both past and present in music, photography, art, film, writing and much, much more. Make the jump to view the full program.
