Arts OutWest is thrilled to offer a unique opportunity for 15 regional visual artists to create artworks in response to regional music.
While the World Waits is a 2021 compilation album of 15 original tracks by musicians from the NSW Central West. In response to the impacts of Covid-19 on the local music industry, Arts OutWest commissioned 15 songwriters across 11 local government areas in the region to each write a song reflecting their experiences of 2020.
While the World Waits Exhibition is a curated program in which 15 artists will each respond tracks or themes of the album. The first exhibition will launch in February 2022 (venue tbc) and will travel to multiple locations across the region.
Expressions of interest for the exhibition project have closed and artists have been selected.
More information to come.
Meanwhile, the album that inspired it all is still available to purchase:
