Live & Kicking: Genni Kane (Oberon)

Genni Kane has been writing songs and performing them for over 40 years. She first found her feet as a songwriter with the legendary ARIA and multiple Golden Guitar winning 80’s band, Flying Emus. It was during this time that Genni discovered a love of writing in her own voice; writing about what she knew and experienced every day.  Genni has written songs for many projects and artists from
Slim Dusty to Bananas in Pyjamas, and many others in between.

While the World Waits Exhibition (Oberon)

Malachi Gilmore Hall, Oberon 124 Oberon St, Oberon, NSW

In 2022, artists from across the Central West have been asked to use the CD as a jumping off point and inspiration for new work. This unique opportunity for regional visual artists to create artworks in response to regional music has been a labour of love for Arts OutWest. While the World Waits Exhibition is a curated exhibition in which selected artists each respond to one or more tracks, title or words on the album.
The exhibition will showcase work from across all mediums. You will see painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, moving image, animation, photography, glass and textiles.
