The CORRIDOR project have recently received two significant grants one from Create NSW for BIG little histories of Canowindra to assist with the production scheduled for October 20th-21st 2018. The other is through the Regional Cultural Fund for a project called MOVE Museum of Vast Exchange.
Big little histories of Canowindra is a multi art-form event that interweaves four significant local histories, including Devonian fish, Aboriginal, Agricultural, and Bushranger history. The event will continue a legacy of innovative material developed for public interest for the Canowindra, Cowra, Grenfell Historical Societies and Age of Fishes Museum.
These histories will be linked through a community event whilst activating one of Canowindra’s most significant historical precincts, scheduled for October 20th-21st 2018. Site specific works include multi-media projections, installation, soundscape, multi-arts and indigenous language. The event will be staged as a non-linear installation and performances will take place between Canowindra Silos, Canowindra Historical Museum, Age of Fishes Museum, Swinging Bridge and the Royal Hotel. This project is supported by the Office of Environment and Hertitage – Heritage Near Me + Create NSW – Arts and Projects.
The CORRIDOR project has secured a Regional Cultural Fund grant for MOVE…..
Deputy Premier Mr John Barilaro recently announced that $142,715 towards operational funding for the development of MOVE – Museum of Vast Exchange – developed by the CORRIDOR project located near Cowra. MOVE is a temporal museum based on a commercial building typology providing a hermetic environment to connect arts, site and communities.
The concept for MOVE is born out of a recognition that there are severe restrictions and limitations for the display of gallery and museum based exhibitions outside of major institutions. The proposed MOVE space will not only provide access to a range of contemporary art experiences for regional areas, it also has the potential for diverse applications including international touring, destination art initiatives, exhibitions at cultural and music festivals, art fairs and international biennales.
“These inventive projects will give locals and visitors a fresh experience, boost tourism dollars, create jobs and act as a community focal point,” Mr Barilaro said.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke congratulated everyone involved in helping secure the funding win.
