Stage 4 - Overview
Celebration & Community
This stage is the culmination of the three previous stages within the overall Mycelium project. It is the moment where artists and arts organisations connect with their broader community through presentation of Open Borders - a series of exhibitions and performances containing diverse creative expressions in diverse locations - regional, metro and online. Initially, the works are premiered to 10 different communities across all 9 regions during October 2022. Selected works are then presented at John Curtin Gallery in October 2023.
Stage 4 results in a replicable, scalable and sustainable framework for an ongoing Regional Art Triennial (AKA the Bush R.A.T.). The project’s extensive network of partners will co-design and test the model through implementation of the inaugural event, providing foundation for future iterations to increase scope, scale and impact.
The Regional Art Triennial provides a significant promotional platform for contemporary regional art practice, positioning the unique voice of regional experience and creativity central to the State’s cultural narrative.
