Artist in Residence - Shepparton Festival Event

Quick Info

4 – 18 March 2017 at 9:00am / 12:00pm
Secura Lifestyle, 15 Orrvale Road, Shepparton East
Free Event

The residency will consist of an onsite Villa being transformed in an onsite artist residency. The villa will become a festival space. Participating artists are invited to explore the social and cultural conditions of place through their chosen mediums, documenting individual memories and personal experiences. By locating the artists in a local caravan (holiday) park the project opens a dialogue about the sense of place, home, destination, and accommodation. The residency creates a space for the artists to document the shifting terrain of private narratives within larger social spaces – the caravan provides a moment in everyday life.
