Each week two artists will be on site in the Mining Exchange creating large scale projects which will take the forms of drawing, painting or sculptural installation. Visitors will be encouraged to contribute to, and participate in, these projects. Each artist will be provided with materials and assistance to make this possible. The completed projects will remain on site and build a story of engagement throughout the six weeks of BOAA.
12 completed large scale projects will be showcased over the Melbourne Cup weekend, with all those who have contributed encouraged to return to celebrate. Art therapy principals will be the core of our Art Camp projects. Creative engagement allows participants to meet new people, talk freely and feel comfortable within the creative space.
