[Sponsored] See Smeaton’s old mill transformed with light and sound
Visit the town of Smeaton in Victoria's picturesque Hepburn Shire to see their historic mill be resurrected through art, light and music. The old steam and water powered mill (there were no computer chips back in the 1800s) was used to grind flour. Its grinding days are long since gone, but the mill remains an important landmark to the town.
As part of the Anderson’s Mill heritage event the mill will be lit up with video projections accompanied by music. The resulting audio-visual work, Now You See It, will recreate the mill’s built environment. That’s not all that’s happening during the heritage event: over the Mother’s Day weekend the mill will be open for tours, steam engine displays, quilts on show from Victorian Quilters, art from the Ballarat Society of Artists and family history courses and panels.
It’s free to attend Now You See It at Anderson’s Mill. Given that May nights in Smeaton can be chilly, visitors are advised to wear warm clothes, sensible footwear and bring a torch for safety.
This event is part of the Regional Centre for Culture; a year-long celebration of the four buzzing Victorian centres of Bendigo, Daylesford, Castlemaine and Maryborough. Find out more about all the events happening in the Regional Centre for Culture in 2018.
