Broken Hill Art Heritage Residencies Announced!
West Darlings Arts warmly congratulates the artists selected for the Broken Hill Art heritage Residencies to engage with and interpret the stories and heritage of place.
The Artists are:
Aimee Volkofsky. Aimee will research and compose four original songs, inspired by the lives of women from Broken Hill’s history, 50 years apart: 1883, 1933, 1983, and 2023.
Verity Nunan. Verity will explore the evolution of public space as ‘place’ through a combination of repetitive walking and drawing to map the ways in which a community of people engage with their built environment.
Dan Schulz 30 Years of Water Reporting in the Barrier Truth: a project visualizing the long history of community struggle for water justice in Far Western NSW through the water reporting of the Barrier Truth.
Joshua de Gruchy. Joshua’s project is based around Albert and Margaret Morris and the positive impact they had on the regeneration of land by forming the Barrier Field Naturalists Club.
Kelly Leonard. Kelly will explore Broken Hill’s relationship to rocks through strategies such as story-telling, touch, lens, sound, weaving and speculation.
The aim of the residencies is to build visibility for our cultural collections and artists, to build experience in residencies and provide professional development opportunities. WDA will work towards a public outcome of the residencies when they are completed in 2024. Stay tuned!
