    On my first day of arrival till the last day of leaving there was always a sense of a belonging, not only to country but finding a new belonging to people and history?

  • Artist Report: Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro

    26 May 2018

    Staying in Kandos feels a little bit like being back in art school. When we went to University, CoFA campus was tiny. It was quite hard to get around without bumping into friends and having a nice chat.

  • Recognise by Aleshia Lonsdale. Facilitated by Jason Lujan

    05 April 2017

    When researching for this project I was struck by the lack of acknowledgement of the First Nations People of New York. This work was a step into a medium I have not explored i.e street art in the forms of stencils and as a follow up paste ups. The design was a fusion of an Aboriginal Australian protest slogan – Always was, Always will be Aboriginal Land and the Native American Medicine Wheel – with the colours of red, yellow and black which hold significance for both First Nations peoples. This work was an attempt to bring to peoples consciousness the presence of First Nations people in New York city and their connection to their land.

  • Sophie's Circles by Margaret Roberts, facilitated by Melissa Stieger

    01 April 2017

    Sophie’s Circles is also intended to create a continuity with and acknowledgement of the artists working a century ago to develop artforms and art practices that could contribute to the revaluation of place (though they may have used different language), well before the disasterous consequences of this devaluation in climate change was generally acknowledged. It also experiments with ways of including the relationship with actual space that is such an important part of their work by preventing its actual space (the ‘space’ of Spaceland) from being subsumed into the virtual space of photographic documentation (our own variation of Lineland).

  • Untitled (Dissent / Descent) by Connie Anthes facilitated by Kyle Ford

    30 March 2017

    Untitled (Dissent/Descent) is about the atrophy of Western-style Democracy and the consequent erosion of civil rights that were once hard-won through sustained protest and activist movements. Protest today - while still offering fleeting but powerful feelings of solidarity - seems to be a flaccid, theatrical tool that can no longer generate lasting, positive social change. Governments cannot be shamed into action anymore; acts of hope are easily subverted and used as weapons in the fight to consolidate power, wealth and privilege. This is not to say there aren’t alternatives; just that the change is now enacted somewhat invisibly by small communities instead.
