The Creative Practice Circle (CPC) research group at Charles Sturt University will share their research and art practices with Stories from Crevice Communities in Wagga Wagga and online.

CPC research group spokesperson Associate Professor Jennifer Munday in the Charles Sturt School of Education said the recent years have been incredibly unkind to creative practitioners and researchers.

“The government support systems put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic completely ignored the arts and higher education,” Professor Munday said.

“However, the CPC research group has continued to work and support each other and will emerge as a ‘crevice community’ at their week of planned activities, all of which is open to the general public including a two-day symposium titled Stories from Crevice Communities.”

Professor Munday said the two symposium days include three keynote speakers ─ Director of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery Dr Lee-Anne Hall; Associate Professor Margaret Woodward with UK artist Camilla Brueton; and Professor Sue Green, speaking about the Wiradjuri language.

“The week will begin with a re-launch of the HR Gallop Gallery at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga with a small exhibition of invited works curated by Dr Bärbel Ullrich on the theme of the symposium,” Professor Munday said.

“Also included in the program are performance works being presented at the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.

“Dr Louise Curham will give a demonstration of ‘expanded’ cinema, and Ms Jacqui O’Reilly, an acclaimed sound artist from Sydney, will perform her experimental work, Return from Erasure.”

Other activities during the week include an ‘altered book’ workshop where participants can create their own artwork; a Yindyamarra walk across the campus; the screening of documentary on climate change and stranded forests by German filmmakers.

The event runs from Monday 5 to Friday 9 December and a complete overview of activities is available to view online.

The CPC welcomes members of the community who are interested in the arts and creative practice to join in any of the events, all of which are free. Registration is available here.
