Talk

Art in Action

Art in Action was one of the sessions.

How can we harness the unique vision of artists to work with local community and businesses to address key issues facing those communities? How can businesses become more community minded, and what can they bring to the arts? How can art affect communities in meaningful ways?

Taking the Museum of Contemporary Art’s curatorial project C3West as a case study, this panel unpacks the processes of forging lasting connections between community, commerce and culture.

C3West is a unique model which creates situations for artists to work strategically with businesses in Greater Sydney. C3West places contemporary artists at the core of projects, to give voice to local issues and actively involve the business sector in new ways of working together.

Sleepers Awake, the current C3West project, sees UK-based artists Ivan and Heather Morison light Bungarribee, a new area in Western Sydney Parklands, from dusk to dawn with a luminous floating artwork. This co-commissioned project symbolises Bungarribee’s transformation. Audiences are asked to relook and reconsider the possibilities of the Western Sydney Parklands, at see the site at Bungarribee in a new light.

Join the key players in the development of this major public artwork; the curator Anne Loxley; one of the artists, Ivan Morison; and the business partner Yolanda Gil from Western Sydney Parklands Trusts, to hear exactly how this model works in practice. The session will be facilitated by Kiersten Fishburn, Director of Casula Powerhouse.
