The Common Ground project was developed in consultation with Victoria’s regional festival sector in response to an expressed need for professional development in the area of community engagement. The project bought well-known Indonesian installation artist and architect Eko Prawoto to work with four regionally-based Victorian festivals to create a unique piece of outdoor sculpture.
Fresh & Salty
4 landscape artworks, one animation, 6 RADOs, 10 artists, 4 mentors and 26 partner organisations made this collaborative project possible. Fresh & Salty builds on the success of previous statewide projects with the added element of the ongoing support, meaningful collaborations and partnerships that a network of Regional Arts Development Officers can engender.
Following on from the successful pilot workshop Nothing Happens by Magic in July 2006, and one-day seminar workshops for presenters in 2008, the Small Stages program moves to Yarram, Camperdown and Wangaratta in 2009.
