Mycelium – Creative Co-Lab workshop comes to Narrogin for artistic minds

Ever dreamed of putting together an arts project in your town but didn’t know how to make it happen?

Creative people in the Upper Great Southern will have a special opportunity to learn from award-winning choreographer and community engagement whizz Annette Carmichael next month when she facilitates a weekend arts collaboration workshop in Narrogin.

With support from Arts Narrogin, the workshop is designed to upskill creatives from the region to develop arts project ideas, network within the regional arts community and beyond and to collaborate with others to produce powerful artworks which will impact the community.

Annette is coming off a successful regional tour of her dance work for ordinary men The Beauty Index. The project visited regional towns such as Moora and Ravensthorpe where farmers got out of their tractors and tradies downed their tools to dance on stage in front of their communities. The Beauty Index project followed the critically-acclaimed performance of Chorus in Denmark in March 2020 which saw 150 women come together from multiple regional communities to perform. Annette’s projects have a special sense of community about them because they come from the community. It takes a specialised set of skills to engage communities to get involved in arts projects and Annette will share some of her secrets in this collaboration workshop.

If you have an interest in the arts and would like to get a chance to meet and network with like minded creatives from your region, this workshop is for you! 

If you’ve never led an arts project before or if you want to further involve yourself in regional WA’s growing arts community, a couple of days with Annette will leave you inspired and invigorated.

This Creative Grid project is supported through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Program as part of the Regional Arts and Cultural Investment Program, the Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund, which supports the arts in regional and remote Australia, Regional Arts WA and Lotterywest.
