Description

Art + Gentrification + Development
With Yolande Norris
Saturday 25 August, 10AM to 11.30AM
Shop 4, Building 3.4, 1 Dairy Road, Fyshwick
Free though RSVP is essential


Art + Gentrification + Development. It’s a scary title, but a thoroughly interesting one. Join writer and producer Yolande Norris for a workshop and discussion that looks at the complex relationship between art (and artists) and development (and developers). Why do culture and business need each other? Is it a fair relationship? And what are sustainable models for navigating a relationship that’s so loaded with power?

Please tell us your participation requirements when you RSVP.


YOLANDE NORRIS
Yolande Norris is a writer and producer working between Canberra and the regional town of Braidwood. She has worked with visual arts organisations both large and small, including the National Gallery of Australia, Gorman House Arts Centre and Canberra Contemporary Art Space, and has curated a number of exhibitions for artist-run initiatives and public galleries. Yolande’s work extends into arts festivals, including roles as co-director of Critical Animals, a creative research symposium taking place annually in Newcastle as a part of This Is Not Art, and as a founder of You Are Here, an annual experimental and cross-arts festival in Canberra, which she produced from 2010 to 2013. Recently Yolande worked as a producer with Big hART, Australia’s leading arts and social change company, on their national suite of projects. She is currently coordinator for Girls Rock! Canberra, a music education and mentorship program for girls and non-binary youth, and has returned to You Are Here festival as managing producer.

Their work hopes to help foster healthy, cohesive and tolerant societies.
