Cementa is a unique, regionally situated, socially-engaged, artist-led organisation dedicated to cultivating contemporary art in our regional context. Our annual program of residencies and special projects culminates in our major production, Cementa Festival, a biennial festival of contemporary art that brings together over 60 regional and urban artists for a four-day celebration of Australian contemporary art and the small town that hosts it.
This is done through the exhibition of video, installation, sound, performance and 2D/3D artworks in venues and locations across the town and surrounds. Venues include shopfronts, vacant lots, the scout hall, local museum and community centre, the golf course, front yards and public parks. Taking its regional situation as its focus, Cementa celebrates the rich diversity of voices that can be heard within our contemporary arts communities.
