Coastal Twist Shopfront Photo Exhibition

By Coastal Twist
Posted: 21 Oct 2020
24 local businesses across the Peninsula will be part of a vibrant Shopfront photo exhibition also operating as a “get out there and amongst it” Art throughout the region featuring the best of the best photos from across the 2019 Coastal Twist Multi Arts & Culture Festival with shopfronts hanging large 800 x 600 pieces in their windows by award-winning Photographer Lisa Haymes 28 October – 11 November .

Acclaimed Photographer Lisa Haymes having lived here for 17 years has also partnered and worked locally with magazine images across food, fashion and events as well as our most respected institutions which include NAISDA, Central Coast Council and Darkinjung Council.  “Coastal Twist was such a notable fun and important festival, capturing the energy, talent and joy experienced by many over the 3 day extravaganza. Supporting the Arts and creating a visual platform such as the Coastal Twist Shopfront exhibition is a benefit for all involved and creates inspiration and acceptance for the local community on the Peninsula.”

Creative director said “Sadly, this year’s October Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19. The pilot festival in 2019 was a resounding success due to the amazing support achieved from community, valued partners & local business across the Peninsula. The Community support, along with the energy and commitment of our volunteers helped to establish “Coastal Twist” as a major 3-day Arts & Culture Diversity Festival in record time and our rainbow window display competition was one of the highlights of the Festival bringing much joy & colour to our streets.  To keep the ball rolling within the COVID confines we reimagined what we could do to keep visibility, inclusion and momentum going, as a registered Arts & Culture Charity there is nothing we love more than creating activations and entertainment that brings social, cultural and economic benefit to our region. Part of our commitment to social change & public visibility we decided the best way to do this was a photographic exhibition in conjunction with local businesses, all of us working together for a more welcoming Central Coast”.

Our local Peninsula & Gosford Business communities are reflecting the changing face for a more visibly diverse & welcoming Central Coast, working collectively to make small changes to the way we do business, creating significant positive impact for the region.

We have been working closely with Lisa Haymes and are very excited to share with the community all the fun, glamour & creativity that was Coastal Twist 2019. We are hoping that sharing these images not only injects some vibrancy and curiosity to shop windows but humanises difference, opens dialogue & hearts enforcing diversity as the natural norm of every living creature” Said Glitta
