Making Art, Exploring Culture. #BeingNOWhere

It’s a six week program, run by the City of Gold Coast, which invites us to explore culture and diversity through collaborations with a person “of a different artistic, creative, cultural, or linguistic background.” Our aim is to produce work which explores […]
