Blacktown Arts is accepting new applications for two significant artist-in-residence opportunities: the Pat Parker Memorial Residency and Without Borders Residency. Applications close Thursday, 22 March 2018.
Our artists-in-residence will explore their artistic practice, experiment with art forms and produce a range of new work at our Main Street Studios and The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre.
The ‘Recent Acquisitions’ exhibition presents new artworks purchased by Blacktown City Council between 2015 and 2017 that reflect Blacktown, its history and its communities.
Vonne Patiag is a filmmaker whose roots lie here in Blacktown, as well as the Philippines. TOMGIRL is part of Queer for Short: Home Grown, a collection of short films by emerging local filmmakers that tell authentic stories of LGBTIQ experiences.
Inspired by the speech Leo Kelly OAM delivered at the opening of the 2004 Blacktown City Art Prize, we invited our visitors to share their own destinies as artists. Read some of the responses shared by our community.
We present an innovative program inspired by the cultural and physical landscape of Blacktown. But how do we make art? We asked out artists to share their processes, experiences and motivations.
