We the People is a collaborative project situated within the small community groups that populate the inner-city neighbourhood of Darlington. These unique organisations are spaces of leisure—of song, language, food or ideas—and give us an insight into the cultural capital and small histories that tie this suburb together. We The People examines the social fabric that creates a neighborhood and the many different ways culture brings us together.
Throughout the year, contemporary artists have undertaken residencies with these groups: meeting, learning and talking with their members to create new installations and performances that are of and about these distinct communities. Over the first weekend of Liveworks we invite you to collect a map from Carriageworks and walk the streets of our suburb to discover the ideas and ideals that make up this diverse neighbourhood.
Deborah Kelly will create a work with the members of the Association for Good Government NSW, and ‘exercise her rights’.
Anna McMahon is speaking with Aunty Beryl Van Oploo from the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence and will create a food and floral installation with her guidance.
Benjamin Forster is learning Esperanto with the Esperanto Federation of NSW and his project will respond to this universal language.
David Capra and Emma Saunders will combine voice and movement on the streets of Darlington.
