I am currently undertaking an internship in the programming team at Footscray Community Arts Centre in Melbourne's West. This internship forms part of my ArtStart grant activities. The main project I have been working on since late 2011 is the centre's upcoming exhibition, Apple from the Tree. I'm pleased to have the opportunity to work with Michael Brennan, FCAC's Programming Manager in the curation of this exhibition. We've invited locally engaged artists to create artworks with and alongside their kids to explore the idea of 'nature versus nurture' in the realm of creativity. The artists took up the challenge with great enthusiasm and we've received works spanning a variety of different artforms.
The exhibition opens on Thursday 2nd February at 6pm and will run until Sunday 18th of March.
If you haven't visited FCAC yet perhaps now is a good time to start!
