RealArtWorks Inc. is an Arts Company based in Lismore. Formed in 2008, for over a decade RealArtWorks have been developing projects utilizing the skills of artists of varying abilities to interact with other professional artists or marginalised groups (culturally socio-economically or geographically) to create multi art form outcomes with a high level of ‘quality’ that foster creative culture and encourage social awareness.Over the last decade we have toured a punk band to Poland, developed several large scale live art experience connecting place and narrative, created original work for regional galleries, developed and toured a Noise Opera involving 25 Artists from Australia and Europe, and piloted the (un)Usual live Arts Festival in Lismore.
RealArtWorks seeks to alleviate the ‘suffering of artists’ of varying ability who would otherwise lack the opportunity to create and present work, both as individuals and groups. We create Projects working with people and place to creatively examine how our stories inform our sense of belonging, as individuals and communities. Promoting Participation: We work with professional and emerging artists, participants, and audiences to widen engagement and access. Experimentation: We devise original innovative work that creatively investigates our World/s.Build Capacity and Opportunity: We invest in artists and cultivate a culture of opportunity. Create Excellence: We develop excellence, and stretch artistic practice, through a focus on process. Flip Switches: We create artwork that creates new neural pathways in the brains of both Creators and Spectators.
