Workshop: VISION 20/50 an (impossible) festival

Thu 14 March at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

It’s the year 2050, what artwork would you make?

Workshop #1: VISION 20/50 an (impossible) festival

Arts OutWest calls on artists 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.

As part of marking 50 years of Arts Outwest, we are celebrating with a hypothetical Festival – VISION 20/50 an possible festival.

To aid artists in imagining their aspirational ideas for the art-making of the future and prepare a submission, we are holding six free workshops around the region. In these workshops, you’ll be taken through a number of exercises and tasks that will help you imagine all the possibilities for your work, even though it doesn’t exist yet!

This initial online workshop gives an Introduction to VISION 20/50 and EOI Q&A

Further practica workshops will be held:

  • Monday 18 March 6pm – 8pm – Bathurst CSU campus
  • Tuesday 26 March 5.30-7.30pm – Mudgee Arts Precinct
  • Wednesday 3 April, 5.30-7.30pm – Marramarra Makerspace Parkes
  • Thursday 4 April 5.30-7.30pm – Condobolin Community Centre
  • Monday 8 April 6pm – 7.30pm – ONLINE

These workshops are open to anyone of all ages, even if you’re not sure if you’ll put in an EOI. They’ll be a chance to think and play. Workshops are FREE.

Expressions of Interest will close 11 April 2024.
