Description

Create dandelions and make wishes with artists-in-residence Naomi McCarthy and Shirley Daborn!

As part of their Pat Parker Memorial Residency, Naomi and Shirley are hosting a series of dandelion-making workshops. The paper flowers made by participants will form a large-scale collaborative artwork that will be assembled at Blacktown Arts Centre in December 2017.

The project also sets out to collect and share the individual secrets, wishes, dreams and desires of people in the Blacktown community. These wishes will be recorded by the artists as a text-based digital artwork presented alongside the veil of yellow dandelions.

We don’t know what this project will reveal, perhaps the uniqueness of people’s secret wishes or perhaps the similarities.” – Naomi and Shirley
