Founder of cultural and strategic consultancy All Tomorrow’s Futures will work with the selected artists in the VISION 20/50 an (im)possible festival weekend residency.

Arts OutWest is very excited to welcome an expert of Ana’s caliber and thinking to the project. Ana will work with Creative Producer and Director Adam Deusien and the Arts OutWest team and the selected artists at a Weekend Arts Futuring Residency in Bathurst May 3–5.

During the residency artists will develop the concept of a hypothetical artwork, and the future it could exist in. Following this we will work with the selected artists to create material for a festival website, leading up to a public event: A ‘Festival Program Launch’ that celebrates the collective imagination of artists and their radical visions for our future.

About VISION 20/50 an (im)possible festival

As part of marking 50 years of Arts Outwest, we are celebrating with a hypothetical festival – VISION 20/50 an [im]possible festival. We are calling on artists from across the region to imagine an artwork that could be made in the year 2050 in the Central West that speaks to a radically aspirational vision for a possible future for our region.

We are looking for artists with the capacity to imagine big meaningful, impactful ideas for new artworks, people who can imagine an aspirational future for our region and the art in it. We want to hear from any artists in our region and we are looking to uncover the full creative breadth of our region, across all creative art forms (see definitions in eligibility criteria).

We invite you to join an open workshop in March/ April 2024 and/or submit an expression of interest. EOIs close 11 April 2024.
