If you were getting really excited about Northern Exposure 2014 – you can stop now. Why? The committee have decided to cancel it. What the actual fuck is going on here? Our much loved visual arts festival doesn’t get to have its 10th birthday, local artists lose a sweet opportunity to get their work seen, we don’t get to enjoy two weeks of art related events, performances and installations in Northcote. Local traders don’t get to have amazing art in their windows. Nobody wins. Yes this is a rant, and no, I don’t care if you disagree with me.
