STEALTH DENSITY GLENORCHY [IT’S THE ARTS END OF TASMANIA]
Glenorchy, the home of the Museum of Old and New Art [MONA] and the Glenorchy Art and Sculpture Park [GASP!], will put local artists and makers on the international scene by hosting a new arts festival. Based on Japan’s Setouchi Art Triennale, the event will transform the semi-industrial Tasmanian suburb into a world class creative hub.
The fictional festival concept will act as a front to support a less glamorous proposal currently before the Federal Government: a light rail service for Hobart’s northern suburbs. Consequently, the studio will be split between undertaking the macro and micro level planning necessary to host an art festival across the working class suburb and covertly designing the related rail infrastructure and infill development to ease local affordability pressure during and between festivals.
The studio will involve both group and individual tasks, full integration with ARC3401 and a self funded visit to Hobart in week 6 [exact dates TBC].
