Since early October a group of 33 young people and staff members from New Town Primary School have been creating an installation of mechanical cause and effect generators and video art with a group of professional artists.
The public launch for the installation will be on Wed December 16th, 6pm.
ReGeneration is a mental health promotion project that offers young people a chance to respond creatively to contemporary challenges that are complex & interconnected, like bushfires, pandemics, climate breakdown and rising anxiety.
Following 2019’s Remembering the Future - In this second year of our partnership with New Town Primary School - we are continuing to explore how we best find ways to equip ourselves for an uncertain future.
Artists have guided young people to explore the ways that creativity, collaboration, compassion, responsibility, inclusiveness and respect for diversity can be effective in regenerating natural systems, ourselves as individuals and social relations more generally.
It’s been an awesome pleasure to work with this project team: Adam Potito, Denise Tanner & Melissa McCrum from New Town Primary School; science educator Allen Rooney; artists Bec Stevens, Marcus Tatton, Andy Vagg, Stephen McEntee and Joel Roberts; filmmakers Richard Bladel and Troy Melville
