12:00 NOON - 11:00 PM
his February, Something Unlimited reignites the thrusters of the technicolour dream machine, for its second journey into the sun.
The Northcote Town Hall is again the canvas for this madness, but not as it once was. A room once full is now empty, but for the echo of last year’s memories.
Our 2020 instalment is anything but, a fuzzy haze of visual art, music and food that wanders deep into the corridors of your mind.
Ride with us again 🐍 🕛Limitlessness is the only constant 🍇
SOMETHING ABOUT THE SPACE
The Northcote Town Hall will once again be your playground, but not as it once was. In 2020, we move literally and figuratively up George Johnson’s lavish main staircase, opening doors previously closed on levels two and three.
The studio will remain as dark and brooding as the main hall is bright and joyous, while the glorious courtyard offers a necessary reprieve from the immersive maze inside.
SOMETHING ABOUT THE MUSIC
If it ain’t broke.
This February, Something Unlimited once again welcomes a blend of consummate local and international bands and DJs. 1st Round lineup released tomorrow.
SOMETHING ABOUT THE ART
Something Unlimited welcomes yet another terrifically bizarre visual identity from the melted minds at Confetti Studio. Their vision continues to offer more questions than answers.
The Town Hall labyrinth will showcase myriad visual and immersive experiences, conducted under the watchful eye of master mind bender Mikaela Stafford.
5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
|Let's Take Over 2020|
LET’S TAKE OVER is a one night only free arts festival produced by 10 multidisciplinary young artists aged 16 – 25 years.

Over the last 16 weeks, we have been working together to bring you:
• blak workshops where you can learn about indigenous cultural practice
• roving rainbow ice cream cart
• interactive theatre piece focusing on smell and the memories they trigger
• live music
• video art installation reflecting on our relationship to waste
• visual art exhibitions
• subversive youth art market in the civic square
• performance about young women’s anger
• youth panel discussion about ‘young adulting’
• medals for your everyday triumphs, and much more.
5PM - 9PM
Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre, 189 High Street, Northcote.
Suitable for all ages.
Food trucks on site.
No bookings required, just turn up.
We make art that speaks to our values and the values of our communities. Through a synthesis of art forms and experiences, we will provoke, disrupt and create a space for complex dialogue.
A collaboration and disruption from 10 emerging artists, we seek to create unity and show solidarity. Each of us come from different worlds with our own unique skill sets, art forms and life experience; but collectively we are the resistance of Northcote Town Hall and we are taking over!
Join us from 5pm and enter a world of art that no-one has experienced before.
