Boundless Plains – Creative Conversations with Asylum Seekers
Digby has contributed this large canvas ‘Ghosts on the High Seas’ for Boundless Plains -Creative Conversations with Asylum Seekers at the Annandale Creative Arts Centre (ACAC) 9 – 13 August 2014. Inspired by a photograph in the Sydney Morning Herald.
30 artists of different disciplines, were invited to create new works to reflect on current issues facing asylum seekers in Australia. These works explore the issues from different perspectives, bringing to the conversation experience in working with asylum seekers on the ground, as well as on their behalf in policy and activism.
Digby takes us on a quick tour of his exhibition ‘Mix It Up!!’ at Leichhardt Library in November 2012. It was part of a film shot and produced by Christine Olsen which documented the Mark Making Studio, a workshop for young adults with intellectual disabilities held at Sydney College of the Arts.
