These Walls Could Talk
- When 28 Sep - 3 Nov 2019
Recent UNSW Art & Design Graduate, Cameron Cripps-Kennedy and poet Omar Sakr work with students from Bradfield College to create poetic and intimate artistic conversations about mental health, in a work commissioned by TWT Property Group as part of The Big Anxiety Festival.
These Walls Could Talk is a project combining large-scale, site specific installation, with a participatory and collaborative process of art and design creation. The project builds upon the design and text-based work of Cameron Cripps-Kennedy who issues private experiences of micro-aggressions and stigma into the arena of public space.
The residents, students and workers of St Leonards can see this work on Chandos and Atchison Streets, as well as the St Leonards TAFE.
These Walls Could Talk brings conversations about mental health into the public realm, reflecting on the possibilities for creating living and working environments that are conducive to better mental health. It makes visible what needs to be discussed and de-stigmatised to the broadest possible local community and visitors.
Artists: Cameron Cripps-Kennedy, Omar Sakr and Students of Bradfield TAFE, St Leonards.
