Moomba Main Arena

Festivals are about public, private and social space.

They provide contested place and are sites for performing identities. Designed spaces such as the Moomba Main Arena encourage and provide a dynamic relationship between people and the constructed place, the social and physical.  When designing and creating festival spaces you are working within these lines, facilitating an exchange.  This is is carefully planned interaction - highly designed.

“Most festivals create a time and space of celebration, a site of convergence outside of everyday routines, experiences and meanings – ephemeral communities in place and time” (Gibson et al 2011:5)
