Stop Motion Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison Projects

 

This story is from the Kalgoorlie Miner, our local regional newspaper from the Eastern Goldfields in Western Australia. It is a great little story on the fantastic education programs we have delivered at our local prison here in Kalgoorlie Boulder where the prisoners/students make their own stop motion films, combining arts and multi media within accredited training courses. I facilitated and coordinated the programs in collaboration and with the support of a committed education team at EGRP. Hats off to arts and education in prisons and great work to all the folk involved making the films and programs possible.

Timor Leste Art Residency

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

For one week Giovanni C. Lorusso and myself have been undertaking our Artist in Residence Project in Dili, Timor Letse and have been working with local Timorese artist Alfeo Perreira from Timor Art school Arte Moris. Today we have been joined by our fourth collaborating artist Kiki Ando.

Alfeo has been working as a freelancer illustrator, storyboard and comic artist, using both freehand and digital methods.

Days are filled with exploring, observations, art making and conversations that surround ways of life, social needs and norms, politics, interests and the many different ways to visually describe reality and ideas.

For the past week we have been collecting visual material, researching local poetry, drawing, playing music but most importantly making puppets.

 All the images featured in this blog have been taken by Giovanni C. Lorusso. Giovanni has prolifically captured aspects of Dili and everyday life that can be checked out at gclorusso.com.
