Our Pick my Project idea is to bring a positive, uplifting vibe back into the Korumburra and South Gippsland communities, during the long dull days of winter.
Korumburra, nestled in in the green rolling hills, is the gateway to South Gippsland. We would love to create a welcoming display of "Southern Lights" as we light up the trees and buildings along the 3km stretch of highway that run's through Korumburra.
We can envisage that our project could be extended to other towns located along the highway through South Gippsland to truly become Victoria's Southern Lights.
We often talk about "The Winter Blues" but Seasonal Effective Disorder is real for many people and unfortunately Mental Health issues are statistically higher in rural communities like South Gippsland.
Creating The Southern Lights with a Festival Event will encourage people to embrace the cold, get out to socialise and connect with others.
Our Project will strengthen the towns economic development by using local trades for the installation etc.
We will be lighting the way for visitors and tourists to come to Korumburra so they can discover that Korumburra and South Gippsland as so much more to offer.
