The artworks programme will draw out individual and collective narratives over the coming months, through multi disciplinary workshops, public space activations and exhibitions. These findings will then be developed as final designs for implementation during the construction phases in each of the upgrade areas. The programme for 2017-2018 looks at the diverse and layered socio-cultural interrelationships of the Empire/Perth and Louis Botha Development Corridors and their respective upgrade sites, which include Noordgesig.
Reaching out to the creative networks that have been established, starting each workshop with a poem or a song, creatives bring their artwork and tell a story about the art and their neighbourhood. The goal of the workshop is clearly stated. We want to create an arty and fun public space pop-up for one day that attracts people to come hang out and play.
