THE WRITING ON THE WALL
In 2017 two of our past Travelling Artists in Residents, Hannah Ekin & Jorgen Doyle, created the The Writing on the Wall as a permanent public structure at the front of our space to be included in our annual Creative Program.
The Writing on the Wall noticeboard operates as a space for artists, researchers, autodidacts and amateurs to share the matters, insights, and methodologies that they think are most urgently needed in the world. These may take the form of research or creative works-in progress. ‘Curators’ of the noticeboard are expected to work with a mixture of love, hope, and urgency to produce a social space through which to address, and be addressed by, others.
Each curator is responsible for providing content to be wheat-pasted onto the noticeboard over the course of six weeks. The noticeboard is intended both to intervene locally in Alice Springs, and connect local dynamics with narratives specific to other places and people.
Note: Curators of the board may have to subsidise material expenses for their content to be displayed on the board (eg: paper, printing, wheat-paste).
