Regional Futures exhibition opening and symposium - July 21st & 22nd
Videographer Mike Terry and I have been working on a multimedia work to answer the prompt "What does the future look like in your region?" Our project "Sweet Alcaic Meters" will be shown at the opening of the exhibition. The project is inspired by the poetry of Judith Wright and is composed of the sounds and images of the New England regional landscapes. This project is supported by the Regional Futures team and Arts North West. It has been an wonderful time working with Mike.
Following the opening is a symposium where I will be part of a round table to discuss "Listening better/Artists as Transceivers": Artists can immerse themselves in the places where they live and through their creative practices are able to explore ways of ‘tuning in’ and developing a greater understanding and appreciation of eco-diversity and non human perspectives.
