– EDUCATION COLLABORATIONS –
By by ARTAND Foundation
The ARTAND Foundation will continue the good work of Art & Australia in the field of education collaborations which engage all ages. Since 2006, Art & Australia partnered with Sydney’s Art Gallery of New South Wales for Artwrite: Your Say on Contemporary Art, an annual art-writing competition for high-school students. To coincide with Sydney’s inaugural Art Month in March 2010, Art & Australia created a special gallery guide for children and families. In August 2010, ARTAND Australia collaborated with Kaldor Public Art Projects to develop a children’s activity sheet accompanying Stephen Vitiello’s The sound of red earth – a soundscape of recordings made by the artist throughout the Kimberley region in Western Australia. Installed in the historic former Brickworks at Sydney Park, the project transformed the kilns into an immersive environment that evoked the remote Australian landscape.
