Arts Events in Melbourne October 25 – October 31
Crazy in Love, a free experimental arts magazine, is launching its third edition tonight at Motto Melbourne in Collingwood. There will be a DJ blasting out tunes, and the first 50 copies contain a limited edition CD.
Tim Winton will be discussing his latest book, Eyrie, at the Melbourne Town Hall on Monday October 28. The novel follows a divorced and unemployed protagonist who is drawn into relationships with two strangers, a woman from the past and a boy unlike anyone he’s ever known. Entry to the hour long event is $50.
Meanwhile, aspiring filmmakers should check out Filmonik, an open-mic film night where filmmakers showcase short films never before seen in public. It’s also on Monday night, from 6pm onwards.
On Wednesday October 30, Readings Carlton will host Poetry to Pages, a springtime poetry reading featuring ten of Melbourne’s best poets, including Ania Walwicz, Michael Farrell and Jessica L Wilkinson.
To celebrate 25 years of RMIT’s Professional Writing and Editing program, distinguished RMIT alumni such as Chris Womersley (Miles Franklin shortlisted author of Bereft), Zoe Dattner (co-founder of Sleepers Publishing) and Kalinda Ashton (author of The Danger Game) will be appearing at Bella Union in the Trades Hall on Thursday October 31 to discuss their careers and how to get started in the publishing industry. Entry is a gold coin donation.
Incidentally, it’s also HALLOWEEN that night. Since trick or treating is generally frowned upon in adults, your next best option is obviously a ghost tour. Here are some recommended ones.
