    Event description

    The Relationship is the Project: Working with Communities Conversation Series

    The way we view and navigate working with communities has shifted in the post COVID world and continues to evolve. The importance of community voices and self-determination was made strikingly evident by mistakes made. New opportunities exist to interrogate the way in which practitioners, artists and cultural workers can better engage with community-based projects.

    Yarra City Arts presents the final of a series of conversations led by Jade Lillie, curator and editor of The Relationship is the Project joined by some of Australia's leading creative thinkers.


    Join us for a conversation with The Relationship is the Project contributors, Claire G. Coleman, Jen Rae, Alex Kelly and Scotia Monkivitch. Facilitated by Curator and Editor, Jade Lillie, the discussion will focus on climate justice, disaster readiness and recovery and reworlding in our current social, cultural and environmental contexts.
