Home Delivery: Performance



4 November - 9 December 2021

Creative City Home Delivery launched in September 2021 as a series of live artist talks and casual performances from creative’s homes. Each week at lunch time people were able to ‘click and connect’ with local creatives and each other in a digital, live setting. Now in November, Home Delivery has progressed with venue access into Home Delivery: Performance.

When restrictions first began to ease, Hobsons Bay City Council was able to provide venue access to performers at the Williamstown Town Hall. While the town hall is large, capacity restrictions still didn’t allow for an audience, but it did allow for a small film crew. We were able to capture these live performances during lockdown that will now be released over the next six weeks to help re-launch live music in our community. These performances were an opportunity for musicians to re-connect, in some cases with band mates, their creative practice, and the stage after an extended hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each Thursday night at 6pm until the 9 December 2021 we’ll be releasing the performance footage of one artist and in an additional collaboration between Home Delivery and Council’s Arts At Your Doorstep performing arts season, Hobsons Bay will bring ‘Jude Perl: I Have A Face’ to audiences online on Saturday, 13 November at 7pm.

View the full, upcoming Home Delivery: Performance program below as well as links to the previous lunchtime sessions.
