Updated .png

The Mill in Partnership with Critical Path (Sydney) is offering a position for one South Australian First Nations Australian Dance Artist, to attend a 3-day Development Project in Sydney, NSW.

Artists participating in the three day project will explore and share where they find themselves in their practice now, their connections and responsibilities to community, and work to explore how they represent their work (in text, image and when speaking about it) along with what they communicate with others. Finally they will look at how they can support each other to take their respective practices forward.

The Project will have the input of guest First Nations Australian Artists, and has been planned with advice from BlakDance. https://www.blakdance.org.au/

Claire Hicks, the director of Critical Path will be facilitating the agreed framework for the program, with other guest artists, working together to roll out the activities together across the three days.

Confirmed artists are: Jacob Boehme, Mariaa Randall, Henrietta Baird & Jasmin Sheppard
