Spectres of Place is an interdisciplinary art project that considers place-based and co-created knowledges, acknowledging agency of the more-than-human world. By sharing and listening deeply, we seek to remember and learn what caring for country means, and could mean.
Spectres aims to build creative and exploratory pathways for response to and deep engagement with place, the stories, people and experiences that have made us and re-make us, and the reality of the active destruction of the living world as an urgent and directly relevant matter.
By collecting stories and experiences, deep listening, walking, writing, foraging, sound-making and recording, gatherings, discussions, and workshops, we collaboratively map and reflect on the shades and shadows, the memories, the remnants of place.
Considering: Where we are & who we are here now, what we re-member, what the more-
than-human world may know/re-member, what futures are meeting us, how we can actively, creatively
and intuitively be with place and with each other in remediation and regeneration.
Explored through residencies, multi-sensory art works, time and place specific events, workshops and performances, Spectres of Place is a series of unique iterations, a meshwork of collaborative offerings and imaginings.
