I’m excited to be a part of Regional Futures, a two-year NSW state-wide creative project that will culminate with the showcasing in Sydney of new works created during this period. I am one of the artists commissioned to develop new work, responding to the prompt “What does the future look like for your region?”
At the heart of the project is collaboration across sectors bringing artists and other experts together, exploring the future of regional NSW. The body of work produced will be a creative insight into the issues, challenges and opportunities for regional NSW at this moment in time.
The artists will participate in a ten-week self-directed creative development program. This is an artist-led conversation on the changes and impacts currently being faced by the regions and their communities
For Regional Futures, I’m imagining a post-carbon future. How do we think about a world that doesn’t yet exist?
I will hit the road, talking to communities along the Mid North Coast and Orana regions, producing a series of photo portraits paired with recorded conversations about the journey to a post-carbon world. This will allow the receiver to see and listen to the story of that individual in this journey we are all on.
The Regional Futures project website – www.regionalfutures.net.au – will highlight the work of each commissioned artist. This digital platform provides the opportunity to document and share the creative process, to dig deeper into the conversations and interchange between artists and their project partners. I will be updating my artist page as my project develops. See more HERE
Regional Futures is funded by Create NSW and delivered by the NSW Regional Arts Network which represents 15 member organisations that support and promote artists and creative practice across regional NSW. I’m representing the organisation for my region: Arts Mid North Coast.
