Digital Odyssey starts in Mackay!


Digital Odyssey
officially starts today in Mackay! Presented in partnership with Artspace Mackay, Craig will be set up in a large empty office space in Riverside House 43 River St, Mackay, which will operate as the project base for Digital Odyssey and the Hiromi Hotel Mackay Art Farm project. The Hiromi Hotel Mackay Art Farm project will see Hiromi working closely with the community on her collaborative project with Craig, HOME, offering creative exchange and professional development to participants, which can then be applied to future creative projects in Mackay.

As before, the community are invited to contribute materials to the collective screen, or get involved with the creation of specific textiles and sculptural elements. Visitors and people from the local community will then be filmed sharing what their perception of home is, and these videos projected onto the screen creating a large-scale video and sculpture installation.

Craig will be working closely with Hiromi on the project, and also displaying other works in and around Mackay, including in the windows of Riverside House. In addition to this and other public programs, Craig will be presenting a short talk at the Regional Art Awards this coming weekend, and then presenting an artist talk to on Monday 22nd August. Keep tuned for further details on the talk or contact Artspace Mackay on (07) 4957 1722, and come along next Monday to find out more about Digital Odyssey in Mackay.

The Hiromi Hotel Mackay Art Farm project has been made possible with assistance from the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), and the Building Supportive Communities program.  The RADF is a Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Mackay Regional Council partnership to support local arts and culture.  Building Supportive Communities is an initiative of the Queensland Government through Disability and Community Care Services.
