The Mary River Festival is an opportunity for a playful celebration of the unique environment and vibrant communities that exists along the Mary River in Queensland, Australia.
In 2014 the River Listening team was invited to present a pilot of the River Listening immersive installation at this community event. This was an experiment for our interactive sound installation in development that uses transducers and bone conduction to give audiences the sensation of listening underwater.
The mission of this festival is to increase the awareness of the unique Mary River environment through recreation and celebration.
They are committed to empowering the communities along the Mary River by showcasing local creativity, projects, ideas, resources, culture that enhance and protect the unique environment of the Mary River catchment, while featuring workshops and exhibits, entertainment and children’s activities in a festival atmosphere.
