Make art and get it out there! At least that’s what we know we should do. But with often limited budgets, time and resources, it’s hard to know where to start.

So, we thought – why not share some insider hacks on promoting visual art on a shoe strong. We’ve pulled together some experts in the biz including artist Emma Coulter; Zilla and Brook Director Fiona Brook; and our very own Director Melinda Martin.

Presented as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2019.

Performance > Sound Bath with Mona Ruijs

WHEN> Tuesday 27 August 2019 > 7PM to 8.15PM
VENUE> Linden New Art, 26 Acland Street, St Kilda 
COST > $35

Artist Mona Ruijs will facilitate a sound immersive experience with gongs, quartz crystal bowls, Himalayan singing bowls and various other sound tools that are designed to induce profound physical relaxation, and contemplative states. Lying down on mats you will be saturated and cocooned in the live sounds as you enter inside the wonderful world of the sound bath.

The joy of a sound bath is the opportunity for you to lay, listen deeply with your whole body and go inwards, as you may access a consciousness that lies between sleeping and waking. Here you may be transported to states of stillness, meditation, bliss, altered states of awareness, and self-healing. Sound bath participants variously report powerful bodily sensations and brain states often accompanied by creative thought, rich imagery, insights, and feelings of rest and timelessness. This unique composition of frequencies and harmonics produces a soundscape that washes over you, with the intention to release bodily tension and produce a relaxation response lowering stress, cortisol and adrenaline levels. We invite you to explore new ways of listening and responding, as the ear hears, the brain listens and the body senses vibrations.
