2011 Creative Challenge Punmu Montage from AWESOME Arts on Vimeo.

Check out this video created by my fellow AWESOME Artist, Jarrad Seng, during our stay in Punmu, a remote community in the north west of Australia.  We were guests of the community for 2-weeks as part of the AWESOME Arts 2011 Creative Challenge ’15 Minutes of Fame’ Project.  We worked on using video & photography to capture stories about the famous places in and around Punmu.  As we will be leaving Australia in June 2012, this will be my last residency with AWESOME Arts.  Over the last 5 years, I’ve visited so many amazing places and worked with some very special bright young things!

Enjoy the video, it’s truly beautiful and really captures the lovely spirit of all the kids and teachers we had the pleasure of working with during our 2-week stay in Punmu!

’15 Minutes of Fame’ currently has a collaborative exhibition of all 14 residencies from the past year as part of the AWESOME International Arts Festival for Bright Young Things.  The exhibition is being held at the 140 William Complex beside the Perth Underground Station.  If you live in Perth, please stop by to check out all the amazing work from the past year!  The festival runs until Sunday November 27th, so you’ve still got time left.

To check out other exhibitions and shows happening as part of the festival click here for a sneak peek of the works from the last few days of the festival.  Also here is a link to an article in the Pilbara Echo about the residency.
