The streets of Ouyen will soon be home to bush ballads, prose and poetry penned by locals as part of Ouyen’s Mallee Up in Lights Small Town Transformation.
The Mallee up in Lights project invites people to compose a poem about the Mallee and what it means to them. The poems will then be displayed on chalk boards set up at different sites throughout Ouyen for people to enjoy.

A co-production between Force Majeure and Belvoir, Food combines elements of drama, comedy, dance and cookery in an erotic mix of words and movement.
Rodgers co-directed Food with acclaimed choreographer Kate Champion, Artistic Director of Force Majeure. Together Rogers and Champion have crafted a communion between the audience and the characters as they come together around the dining table.
Elma (Mel King) and Nancy (Emma Jackson) are sisters. Nancy left their remote, truck stop home many years ago; Elma stayed. Nancy chose chaos, freedom and sex; Elma stayed behind and cooked. Now Nancy has returned and their lives are disrupted by the arrival of Hakan Leventoglu (Fayssal Bazzi) ‘Hassan, son of Handsom’, a restless Turkish traveller.
A play called FOOD would not be complete without the real thing. At each performance selected members of the audience will be served supper.
FOOD has been described as ".." a delicious piece of theatre" to "..a robust meal – warm, substantial, and completely delicious.".
Residents from Ouyen and surrounding areas are being called on to take photographs encapsulating what it means to live in the Mallee and enter them in the Mallee Up in Lights Postcard competition.

More information on the Programs on offer:
Dinosaurs have long been the subject of fascination for children. Through stories and activities, this program will introduce to children the ways in which humans have come to understand dinosaurs through finding and studying fossils. Children will be able to talk about and touch real dinosaur fossils from the Museum Victoria collection, learn about ancient time periods, see life size replicas of dinosaur skulls, feet and legs, and talk to our presenters about their favourite prehistoric creatures, including Stegosaurus, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus rex.
Australia is home to some of the most interesting animals in the world. This program teaches children about the lives and habits of our favourite mammals, birds and reptiles. Children will learn fascinating facts about these animals and develop an understanding of how special they are, as well as having fun through games.
We look back fondly at a time when childhood was different.
Children's games and entertainment have changed a lot in the past 100 years. We use items from the Museum Victoria collection to look back to a time when marbles, jacks, toodle-um-bucs, and spinning tops were an important part of childhood. Participants will be encouraged to share their memories.
This program has been developed for an Alzheimer's and Dementia specific audience, and our presenters have vast experience and training in presenting programs to people with these illnesses.
