2017 Creative Challenge – Perth

Proudly supported by Crown Resorts Foundation and the Packer Family Foundation

Creative Challenge – Perth is an exciting new program for AWESOME in 2017.

Across two years we will deliver an artist-in-residence to six metropolitan schools.

  • Bentley Primary School

  • North Balga Primary School

  • Koondoola Primary School

Each residency will see an artist-in-residence working within the school over ten days that encourages young people to consider their individual and collective community identity. The program is process-driven, and involves the participants to undertake research, conceptual development and implementation of an artwork that will communicate the uniqueness of their community. The artistic outcomes of each residency will be showcased at the AWESOME Festival in the year of their residency, to which the participating schools will undertake an excursion and celebrate their achievements.
