Food for Thought - Artist Talk

An appetising selection of arts activities are on offer as part of the Food for Thought program at Mundaring Arts Centre until 1 August. 

Art lovers can join the conversation about the Food for Thought program at an Artist Talk, and view a multi-artform exhibit showcasing outcomes from the project.

Shire President John Daw said the community is invited to explore and celebrate the many outcomes of this multifaceted project.

“This six-month collaborative project, presented by Shire of Mundaring and Mundaring Arts Centre, brought together local cultural groups and renowned WA artists," said Cr Daw. 

“A unique component of the project was this mentorship by established artists sharing their skills while delivering art and writing workshops to people of all ages.”

Participants enjoyed over sixty workshops and events which explored food culture through art.”

As part of the wrap-up for the program, local artists Bernard Kerr and Josephine Clarke will discuss food culture with artist Jenny Kerr at a free Artist Talk on Saturday 24 July from 11.30am at the Mundaring Arts Centre.

The talk will be followed by a reading of six poems produced during the workshops by writers from the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre in Greenmount. Visitors are also invited to wander through the exhibit over afternoon tea. 

“The Hills are alive with talented local artists. Public events such as these are a vibrant part of our cultural fabric. This collaborative project between artists and the community celebrates why we love to live in the hills,” said Cr Daw.

The Food for Thought Project was made possible by funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries’ Outer Metro Arts Grant.
