Collective Painting by three Costa Rican women
Painting and Writing Workshop
8th Dec 1999
The Arts Project Officer's role was to establish a connection with groups of women who were currently working in the fields of the arts and crafts or women who showed some interest in participating in the project, and initiated a discussion around the concepts of heritage, traditions and culture.
These groups contributed with material that reflected our cultural diversity: art objects, objects of worship and tradition (e.g. tapestries, paintings, ceramics, masks, dresses, etc, tangible objects or intangible objects: incorporating songs, dances and festivals that relate to their traditions, attitudes and experiences in Australia.
was gathered over a period of approximately four months.
The project was launched in Parramatta and travelled to Coffs Harbour and the Riverina
MEANS AND METHODS:
Through participation/interaction: e.g., Group dynamics (brainstorming, etc), use of visual material (photographs, slides, etc.), games and theatre techniques to motivate group discussion.
Thanks to Cecelia Siilva for all her hard work and creativity on the project!
