City of Swan community
artists: Lisa Holt, Dylan Madurun and Tim Maley
This project is about getting people talking. Talking about lived experiences of disability and/or mental illness, about identity and the factors that have shaped it.
A collaborative project between the City of Swan community and DADAA, Interconnection has two main phases. In the first phase of the project, stories were recorded from the local community who were invited through City of Swan libraries to share their experiences of living in the region. In the second phase of the project, three artists from the City of Swan region who work out of DADAA studios, responded to the collected community stories.
Tim Maley, Lisa Holt, and Dylan Madurun each chose a story from the recorded interviews to inspire their artwork which will feature in an exhibition at Midland Courthouse in September and October. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to listen to the interviews associated with each artwork via a smart device.
Date: Saturday 16th September – Saturday 16th October
Where: Midland Courthouse
Community driven, supported by City of Swan
