BRIDGES 

You Are Here Bridges Activations - Professional Development Opportunity

Proposed Activities

 

Professional development opportunity for You Are Here artists to scale up their studio work onto public infrastructure (in particular the bridges) a long Sullivan’s Trail route.

 

The intention is to highlight the bridges to bring greater awareness to the history’s and cultural significance of Sullivan’s Creek and to bring awareness about our urban waterways. These activated sites will become landmarks through this active green belt. Encouraging the public to engage with these utilitarian structures and surrounding public spaces in a new ways.

 

Artists to respond to themes supporting Sullivan’s Trail mission.

 

Sullivan Trail mission is to embedded our Indigenous Stories within the landscape, educate and challenge our communities about our urban waterways, to inspire communities to find common ground through building connection to places.

YAH Artists will be mentors by Ruth O’Brien, Musician and Accessibility Advocate.

Wally Bell , Ngunnawal Elder will provide Cultural mentorship. 

 

Graffiti artist and sculptor Byrd will provide group and individual technical mentorship for this program. During a series of sessions Byrd will support artists to translate and install their studio work into a public scale.
