FedUni-Live presented a huge collaboration with The first ever World Sideshow Festival presented completely LIVE by our students studying Live Production at Federation University Australia at SMB Campus in Ballarat. The 1st World Sideshow Festival was a celebration of all things Sideshow. Sideshow as a genre has come of age and as a genre of performance is experiencing a huge surge in popularity worldwide. This event was the creation of Australian Sideshow legend Mr Shep Huntly and the collaboration with FedUni-Live occurred with the support of FedUni-Live staff member Rex Hardware – both were former students at University of Ballarat in the 1980’s and saw the chance to create a unique opportunity for students, performers and audiences to share in this Festival at Ballarat’s magnificently restored 1870’s Mechanics Institute in Ballarat.
