Announcing a new masterclass, focused on the needs of regional South Australian storytellers and visual artists ready to embark on their journey to create large scale projection.
Leading Lights brings the participating artists together in a process designed to develop specialised skills in digital art / animation / projection, storytelling, community art, cultural development, remote collaboration, workshop facilitation and creative project facilitation, in which they maintain project momentum, strengthening relationships between several remotely connected partners, stakeholders and groups.
The training workshop will occur in two stages, beginning with an intensive training session on 16-19 February 2017 in Port Adelaide, and culminating in a practical residency in Goolwa in April 2017.
There are up to 20 places in the program, of which six places have been filled. During the program, there are two levels of training.
1: Regional Digital Arts Collaboration: specialist skills involved in the production of projection art and digital arts projects.
2: Advanced mentorship in the high level process of devising and managing a community arts project featuring digital media public outcomes. This opportunity has already been taken up by two of the attendees (Care Vaughan and Nisa Schebella) from Alexandrina region, SA.
Interested regionally based participants who qualify will be able to apply for subsidised places and all interested participants will be able to gain support through our upcoming crowdfunding campaign. For further details please contact Verity Brookes, Community Engagement Officer on verity (at) illuminart.com.au
This project is part of illuminart’s ‘Port to Port’ statewide project, creating digital stories to connect port towns throughout South Australia with their past, present and future through the exciting portal of projection art. It has been made possible with the support of the Australia Council for the Arts.
