Time: Wednesday, 17, September, 2014 10am-11am
Place: La Trobe University, Bundoora Campus -  Room: EDU 239-ELT

Vic McEwan, artistic director of the artist led organisation Cad Factory, will present examples of a new mode for art making which partners deeply with business, health and communities. Dispelling myths that engaging with communities dilutes the artistic output, he will highlight the opportunities that exist to engage high level, experimental, contemporary art making while enaging directly with the practical world. McEwan will share examples from previous partnerships with organisations such as SunRice and exploration of things as complex as The Murray Darling Basin Plan, as well as talking about future project as part of his Arts NSW Regional Arts Fellowship.
