The either / oar sailboat will be docking at MPavilion for this special Friday sunset series, with DJs and discussion.
They'll be discussing the deep relationship we have with ‘place’ and exploring how place is simultaneously reconciling the past, the present and the future. You'll be asked to consider what is it that ties you to place, and how that relationship has changed with time. Unravelling the knots of a fishing net, panellists will untie how our experiences, ideas, memories and feelings come together to tie us to place.
Paul Gorrie will be DJing from the boat either side of this unraveling, providing the beats that will connect you to the ground beneath your feet alongside the beautiful Yarra.
either / oar is an urban activation project that utilises an old wooden sailing boat to tell the story of place, its past, present and future. With the boat retrofitted to operate as a pop-up bar, either / oar aims to activate under-utilised, abandoned or overlooked places in our fast changing city.
