Happenstance is a surprising new community arts festival held on the Merri Creek in Coburg North and Fawkner. From 1-5pm on the 25th of February, we invite you to take an unexpected journey along a well-trodden path, and see the creek in a new light. Discover a trail of music, art, and performance celebrating the Merri Creek and all it has to offer.
Happenstance is about engaging with the beautiful natural environment of the Merri Creek, bringing together local communities and highlighting the importance of sustainable practices in urban environments.
In conjunction with Friends of Merri Creek and the Sustainable Living Festival, Happenstance brings together emerging artists with local community groups to highlight the importance of preserving this wonderful natural resource.
There will be so much to discover: enchanting creatures wait to lead you on a journey beyond the physical. Stay a while and revel in the colours and richness of this trail through stories told with dance and movement. Give in to your curiosity, seek out new adventures, and delight in the magic of happenstance.
Happenstance is completely free and is proudly supported by the City of Moreland’s Celebrating Place Grant, Friends of Merri Creek and the Sustainable Living Festival.
