MotherNature is a common representation of nature that focuses on the life giving and nurturing properties of the Earth by embodying it in the form of a mother. To this extent the masculine form of the sun, when combined with the feminine form of the Earth, work together to create the conditions required for life on Earth.
MotherNature takes place in Canberra in late February, at a time when the golden colours of summer are in full swing and life is abundant and flourishing. We aim to provide an experience that allows you to bask in the warm sun with your friends and immerse yourself in music, arts, culture and lifestyle.
Our venue – Rose Cottage http://www.rosecottagecanberra.com
Rose Cottage is a bouttique heritage listed homestead on the South side of Canberra. The site features a number of old buildings used as cafes, bars and our indoor Terra stage. There is also an expansive outdoor area, with a sandpit, plenty of grassed areas and trees for shade, a large number of tables and chairs on which to sit and relax, our Gaia main stage and of course, our quaint chill and lifestyle areas nestled into the corners.
This festival will bring a variety of artists and friends together from across Australia, as well as support our local talent. There will be some fantastic decor, artwork, lighting, visuals, performance art and staging production. In addition to the formal proceedings there are a number of activities, such as workshops, our morning "hug fest" and our soon-to-be-famous "Sunday pool party" with super soaker action on the main stage. Servants of Sound will be providing an excellent sound setup.
First round artist announcement will occur on 31st November. Stay tuned for details.
