Local Artists Selected For State-Wide Project

Local Artists Selected For State-Wide Project

Local artists Caity Reynolds and collaborative duo Holly Ahern and Eden Crawford-Harriman have been selected to participate in the state-wide Regional Futures project.

Regional Futures is a two-year creative project funded by Create NSW and delivered by the NSW Regional Arts Network which represents 15 members organisations that support and promote artists and creative practice across regional NSW.

At the heart of the project is collaboration across sectors bringing artists and other experts together, exploring the future of the regions.

The artists will participate in a ten-week self-directed creative development program that will involve weekly online sessions with various thought leaders and studio visits from the project’s Artistic Director.

Regional Futures will culminate with the showcasing in Sydney of new works developed as part of the project.

ABOUT THE PROJECTS

Caity Reynolds

Using humour, play and satire,artist Caity Reynolds will create a series of paintings that unpack the future socio-economic insecurity faced by the Northern Rivers.

Holly Ahern & Eden Crawford-Harriman

It is hard to define the future of the Northern Rivers region in the aftermath of the 2022 major floods. Using dormant billboards and signpost structures artists Holly Ahern and Eden Crawford-Harriman will take snippets and quotes from community conversations about the future to become a series of vibrant and eye-catching artworks or ‘signs’ installed across the region.
