Goulburn Valley Emerges for Flood Relief Event
The resilience of the Goulburn Valley community was on show in Fryers St, Shepparton on Sunday, as more than 1500 people gathered for the flood recovery event, EMERGE.
EMERGE was held by GOTAFE, with the support of Music Victoria, the Victorian Government, La Trobe University and University of Melbourne.
The Cat Empire headlined the event and were supported by local acts JB & Me, Bricky B, Tenielle McKenzie and DRMGNOW, who also performed a Smoking Ceremony and Welcome to Country.
Travis Heeney, CEO GOTAFE said the event had a great family-friendly atmosphere.
"The Cat Empire brought fun and energy to the EMERGE flood relief event, with families singing and dancing along to their set. It was great to see the community come out and enjoy a positive experience together before the end of the year."
EMERGE was a celebration of the resilience and strength of the Shepparton and Goulburn Valley communities as they continue to recover from the devastation of the recent flooding.
Along with live music, there were food trucks, hair braiding, henna tattoos, balloon animals, giant games and family activities for all to enjoy.
