All Aboard! ROLLING STOCK is a series of site specific performances, installations and collaborations between artists, visiting audiences and the local Junee community on a train moving through the rural landscape from Midday to Midnight on Saturday 20th November, 2010.
Ranging from the odd, the spectacular and the sublime, ROLLING STOCK embraces art, community and landscape in its broadest form(s). Beginning with a series of creative residencies with over 15 artists generating content with and relevant to the Junee community and other worldly concerns, ROLLING STOCK will culminate with a 1 day public event commencing at Junee Railway station at high noon on Saturday 20th of November.
From here the ROLLING STOCK train will meander its way around the countryside with audio visual installations and participatory live art performances manifesting throughout the afternoon. Concluding ROLLING STOCK will be a Rockabilly band playing live at the Junee Licorice & Chocolate Factory until midnight.
