Behind the Scenes - the making of CrossXpollinatioN 2016

For the past four years COPACC, together with Red Rock Regional Theatre and Gallery and a group of fabulous volunteers, work tirelessly to bring CrossXpollinatioN to life. This year, we captured the bump-in of our exhibition in the Civic Hall on time-lapse video. The Civic Hall exhibition is just one part of the CrossXpollinatioN festival. This video is a snippet of the mammoth-sized work effort that goes in to organising the popular textile and fibre art event. Shot over five days, this is the making of CrossXpollinatioN 2016.
