Giddy-up - have just been invited by Ian McCallum to join in the fun! Animated Spaces is an arts project set for August in Toowoomba this year, along with four other Queensland towns; Charters Towers, Eudlo, Redlands and Hervey Bay. There are three projects in Toowoomba on the weekend of August 23rd and 24 - Tarn McLean's Real Time, Your Time at the main intersection of Toowoomba's CBD, and Andrew McDonald's Up The Creek, a site specific installation using found materials from around the creek.
Ian's Bigrafetti is a series of wall murals developed from workshops with local children. He has invited me to host a Biograffiti Development Workshop with young writers, aged between 9 and 12, on Saturday 10th August at 8.30am to 11.30am. Venue: The GRID. We will be working with the children helping them develop characters and settings and stories which will be used as a launch point for the artists working on the murals over the projects main weekend.
