When: Wed 14th September: 6.30pm – 8.30pm 

Where: Chan Contemporary Art Space. State Square, opposite Parliament House
A FREE event. Bring your own refreshments.

Come down and chill out at the Chan next Wednesday evening and let local arts collective  The 10,000 Things take you on a unique audio-visual journey based with recycled sounds, strange instruments and surreal projected imagery.  Also take the opportunity to check out the new Virtual Chan - where you can use your avatar to walk, run or float your way through the new art space developed in OpenSim. Explore and interact with artists work currently displayed in the Chan and digital artworks developed specifically for this new virtual space... where things aren’t always as they seem.

The Chan Art Space will remain open for the event and will be exhibiting the Togart Contemporary Art Award – an exciting and eclectic collection of artwork celebrating the diversity of Northern Territory arts practice through a range of styles and mediums, including painting, photography, sculpture and digital mixed media works.

Recycled Sounds is presented by Darwin Community Arts as part of the Transforming the Chan program running until the end of September – a free community program experimenting with new digital art technologies, lasers, tag tools, video and light projections, shadow play, kinetic forms and interactive soundscapes.
