Esther Kickett Perth Flora 2019 (detail).
Artist Activations are artist conceived projects that engage multi-generational audiences to collaborate on the creation of new works of art.
AGWA Learning is committed to supporting emerging and established artists to develop new concepts and practices that invite multiple perspectives, explore contemporary ideas, amplify diverse voices and encourage hands-on contributions. The process is inclusive, participatory and emergent, prioritising experimentation and discovery over known outcomes. Each of the Artist Activations is connected to our exhibition schedule and sits within the new AGWA Learning model, which promotes meaningful engagement opportunities for diverse audiences.
Current Artist Activation February-May 2019
