State of the Arts @ Fourwinds July 6th

Regional Arts leaders are gathering at Four Winds in Bermagui on Thursday 6 July 2017 for an afternoon of discussion and collaboration. Come along and take part in a Creative Collaboration Forum, presented by South East Arts; then experience the next installment of Four Winds’ Radical Voice Series with Dr Justin Macdonnell presenting in person on his exploration of ‘Chaos Theory & The Arts’.

From 2pm, Tathra-based artist Lindy Hume, Artistic Director of Opera Queensland, and Michael Brealey, CEO of Create NSW will take to the stage. Join the discussion on how regionally-based artists and arts organisations can effectively collaborate within and beyond their own regions, build creative projects, engage with new audiences, and develop alliances with government, business and non-arts organisations.

Andrew Gray, General Manager of South East Arts, will lead a panel discussion focusing on creative collaboration in the region with Iain Dawson, Director of Bega Valley Regional Gallery, David Francis, Executive Director of Four Winds, Shane O’Leary, of Destination Southern NSW, and Sophia Zachariou, Director from Create NSW.

At 5.30pm Four Winds will present Radical Voice #4 with Dr Justin Macdonnell, leading arts historian and producer of Australian artists around the world, presenting on Chaos Theory and The Arts. Why are we always trying to force the arts and artists into boxes? Are we eroding wild and whimsical unpredictability… and are we getting duller in the process? Justin Macdonnell explores these questions and asks if it might be time to apply a little chaos theory to the arts scene.
