‘The Dance’, our fun music video project which was 18 months in the making and included a diverse cast of thousands, was launched to a Sold Out crowd at the dome, Geelong Library on Tuesday 23rd March. The event was part of Geelong Design Week 2021, which celebrates the fact that Geelong is the only city in Australia to be a UNESCO City of Design.
The aim of ‘The Dance’ was to bring joy, and to showcase our beautiful region and many of our amazing, creative individuals, Humans in Geelong team members and community groups who are making a difference. Humans in Geelong volunteer videographer Hadeel of @hs.stories.photography did a brilliant job of matching 60 clips to the winning song.
Andrea Robertson won The Song Contest. Her song ‘Dance the Blues Away’ from the Album ‘Live at New Hall’ was chosen to be the song for the video clip, it’s funky, upbeat music and lyrics matched the project perfectly. Humans in Geelong would also like to congratulate ‘The Red Violets’ who came second in The Song Contest with their song ‘The Beat’. It was a tough choice.
We thank each and every participant in this project. They are all included in our previous post.
Thanks also to the whole team, team member Bec Picone who spoke about Peace of Mind Foundation and guest speaker Kyle Jdali of Atman. You can view the talk on the Geelong Regional Library YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6M1UNmacK3w
