Stories of Place: Submit your artwork
22 Oct, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until December 4, 2020
– Identity and belonging is inextricably linked with place. By expressing the forgotten, lost and remembered we can strengthen our sense of community. These stories emerge through us in our relation to this small corner of the earth, South Eastern Sydney, which has claimed each of us who live, work or play here.
– These creative expressions may come in the form of poetry, painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, audio, dance and performance.
– This year we will explore our ecological identity, one that encompasses an invitation to deepen your connection to the natural landscape of this place that we share. May these artworks be a co-creation of place that responds to developing healthy ecological identities who protect, engage with and tend to the thriving of the land.
– The native as well as introduced plants and animals grow here with us, reflect a story of original ancientness and travelled connections. Let’s shift displacement into belonging. For those of us who have lineages which originate from beyond this place, we might seek a grounding and true welcoming to the land by connecting with the original caretakers of this place. We hope this project can deepen our respect and connection with First Nations people and culture for the entire community.
Online submissions are due by 20th of November.
There will be a showcase night with artworks displayed, prizes given and performances on Friday 4th December, 5-7pm at The SECC Hub in Mascot.
