Join the Edge of Elsewhere artists for a series of talks and discussions about their work and process.

Over the last three years, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and Campbelltown Arts Centre have been collaborating on a major series of projects and exhibitions, presenting major new works by international and Australian artists. Artists have been commissioned by Campbelltown Arts Centre and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art to produce new work in partnership with Sydney’s communities. Thirteen artists from across Asia, Australia, and the Pacific have developed significant projects that challenge how we think about contemporary community-engaged practice. Participating artists include Brook Andrew, Arahmaiani, Richard Bell, Dacchi Dang, Newell Harry, FX Harsono, Shigeyuki Kihara, Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Lisa Reihana, Khaled Sabsabi, Phaptawan Suwannakudt, Michel Tuffery and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES. Co-curators: Lisa Havilah, Aaron Seeto and Thomas Berghuis (2010/2011).

This is an opportunity to hear the artists and curators talk about this important series of projects.

The day will include a number of artist talks between 10am – 2pm. A number of faciliated discussions will be presented including:

1045AM Dr Thomas Berghuis and artists YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES, Khaled Sabsabi and Arahmaiani on their different perspectives on what constitues community engaged practice
