Some definitions to assist you:
The negative relationship we have to our home environment, involving loss of place, identity and decline in wellbeing.
The distress caused by environmental change and degradation of one’s home.
A new era in history where humanity and the environment are living in symbiosis together.
A proposed era of human history where human activities have substantially altered the Earth.
As part of the Regional Futures Project, select artists from the project had the opportunity to exhibit in a group exhibition ‘Artists in Volatile Landscapes’ at the Casula Powerhouse.
Artists in Volatile Landscapes
With the commencement of the Casula Powerhouse exhibition, a symposium took place to ignite ‘Tough Questions’, ‘Critical Thinking’ and ‘Bold Actions’.
I participated in a panel discussing ‘Regional City Divide – insights regional artists bring to the table about resilience and living sustainably.
This was such a great platform to speak about the reality of being a regional artist, and someone living and working regionally.
