The future begins now

Welcome to Weathering the Future, an art exhibition in Ballarat, Victoria, incorporating the talents of the Soldiers Hill Artist Collective, Central Highlands writers, and third-year communication design students from Federation University Australia’s Arts Academy.

The project is a dual ekphrastic process in which the artists of SHAC will respond to the theme of “Weathering the Future”, looking at the hurdles and innovations we face at the beginning of the Anthropocene. Writers at various stages of career will respond to those artworks in flash fiction and poetry. Those written works will be embodied in text art by the Arts Academy students. All will be presented at an exhibit at Ballarat’s Backspace Gallery, in Camp St, in December 2018.

Sound interesting? We’ve got more planned, so if you’d like to stay in touch, please sign up or our mailing list to keep informed of progress updates, and also details for the official launch on Saturday, December 8.

Weathering the Future is curated by Kirstyn McDermott and Jason Nahrung, the convenors of Words Out Loud in Ballarat.
