Creative Connections, was a project through Wyong Neighbourhood Centre, to engage local community through the local high school to bring Chain Valley Bay Community hall some colour, vibrancy and to help with issues of vandalism to the building. Local high school students came together with a team of artists, to create a colourful art installation that utilised drain pipes to create a living wall of plants, and a new dry bed garden with painted river rocks.
Creating Space Project ran for a year from 2018, and brought together a group of women from various backgrounds and of all abilities to weave in nature. Once strangers to one another these women, some with no prior weaving experience, came together on a regular basis to weave all over the Central Coast in nature, share wisdom, and cultivate friendships.
The Impressability project empowered young people 12-25yrs with various disabilities, to explore their identities through experimental mark making, photography/ video and performance art. The aim of the project was to foster the artistic ‘identity’ of the twelve participants, and build artistic confidence.
