Contested Landscapes of Sydney

In September 2011, I sought and received $80k in funding from The City of Sydney’s Art and About, to stage a two-week long art event in a specially designed pop up gallery, at Sydney’s Circular Quay, entitled Sydney’s Contested Landscapes.

The project, which I designed, curated and co-produced, was a creative collaboration between art and science with creative minds and thinkers coming together to highlight the complex contests for scarce land and resources facing our communities. Some of the topics covered were water quality, land usage, urban development, transport and food security, and involved participatory artworks which engaged the community in baking bread, public painting, music performances, scholarly public lectures and public discussions with local farmers and bee keepers.
