Tailoring services that suit
In 2015 in the lead up to the Festival of Voices I was invited to come on board as Producer/Director to work with an amazing troupe of musicians, performers, writers and artists who had produced work from a visit to the wonderful Tarkine in North West Tasmania. With very little time, we got to work and with an intense schedule of rehearsals, an amazing technical team and incredible amount of beautiful work produced by the artists, the show was performed to a packed audience at The Peacock Theatre in Salamanca Arts Centre. The performance was part of a much bigger program that is supported by the Bob Brown Foundation
FLINDERS ISLAND; Journey of the Argonauts 2014-2014
For twelve months spanning 2013-2014, I worked with nine Flinders Island artists to individually develop their art practice and to work with the whole group to work towards a group show. The program included one on one coaching with individuals plus a series of workshops tailored for the group that focused on expanding their practice and exploring the complexities of living a creative life.
This work included group workshops and individual art coaching sessions to artists who worked in painting, drawing, sculpting, assemblage, textiles, film making and photography.
The aim was to support them in developing their individual practice while also drawing them together to work collaboratively on a group show that we aim to exhibit around November 2014 in the Strait Gallery at Whitemark.
The Journey of the Argonauts was opened on 31st November at the Straits Gallery, Whitemark on Flinders Island, with a collection of new contemporary work by eight of the artists. The exhibition was a great success, with a very positive response from locals and visitors to the island. The final show was co-curated with Jane Stewart, the Principal Curator at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, in Hobart.
Above is one of the beautiful works by the fabulous Rachel Dallas, an assemblage artist who combs the beach for her materials.
