I certainly was an honour to be chosen from a field of twenty-five contenders for this two week artist residency in Blackall in outback Queensland in October during the Heartland Festival. The residency brief involved a week of arts practice and a week of community engagement with workshops, artist talks, and judging of their annual Heartland Art Award.
This was a great opportunity for me to work on digital imagery for the RE:Location project for later fine art processing in my studio, photographing the environment, and writing chapters for my new book, in readiness for the first exhibition. So much happens during the Blackall Heartland Festival in this creative outback town that the time here has been hectic and flown by faster than I imagined it would.
