2015 – what a year!

With the holiday season upon us it feels like the right time to reflect on the year that was…

2015 has been a fantastic first year for the Engage Arts team. We’ve produced some exciting projects and collaborated with amazing creative partners. For the International Year of Light we participated in the U.R{BNE} Festival bringing a range of creative projects to life. We organised a 1 Million Stars to End Violence workshop and were proud to produce Alinta Krauth’s projection mapped installation, Wind blisters those who try to run, which shone a light on the Old Windmill at Spring Hill.

Danielle and I worked with a team of curators on Reminiscence, an exhibition and festival celebrating the life of Judith Wright in her centenary year. For this project, Engage Arts was tasked with creating the new ‘Curators in Space’ website for Flying Arts Alliance. You can check it out here: http://curatorsinspace.com/

It was with great pleasure that we profiled over 20 artists on our blog, learning more about the work of so many talented contemporary artists. A big thank you to all of the artists who took the time to answer questions for our ‘In the Spotlight’ blog features – we are glad to have gained insight into your work and shared it with our followers.

Exciting things are just around the corner for Engage Arts. We are kicking off the year with a laneway installation for Brisbane City Council’s BrisAsia Festival and looking forward to taking art to the streets collaborating with the Story City App.

I look forward sharing more engaging art and cultural experiences with you 2016. Have a happy holidays and sparkling New Year.
