Realising the big picture through community art
Episode 8 of Artspiration takes us all the way from one person’s idea to an awesome community outcome. It certainly wasn’t easy – Lizzie Robinson went from intending to just hand out woodcuts for people to carve themselves, to running whole carving workshops that let people of any skill level get involved with the Hard Pressed project in its many different roll-outs! *ba-dum, tish*
Lizzy and her brother Geoffrey Myers talk through how the pieces came together, while community artists Jane Barndon and Cam Starcevich tell us about what the work they produced meant for them and their communities. Esperance Community Arts’ Jane Mulcock also the success of their local Hard Pressed. The results from across the state are absolutely incredible – just take a look at the Facebook page for more awesome examples.
Artspiration is an initiative of The Creative Grid project through the Regional Arts Partnership Program supported by the Departments of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, and Regional Arts WA.
