Art Matters – The Island – Registrations now open!

Registrations are now open for the third Art Matters project – The Island.

Forms can be accessed through the Horsham Rural City Council website or by clicking here.

The project commenced Monday 6 March and the group will meet weekly each Monday from 4-6pm (except Public Holidays and School Holidays) at Jubilee Hall, Horsham.

For enquiries, please contact Jillian Pearce, Community Development Officer at Horsham Rural City Council at

The project will see two utilitarian objects, industrial pallets and wheelie bins, used in an innovative way. Industrial pallets will be transformed into a series of personalised islands which will become a series of individualised art objects, performance spaces and film sets for a wheelie bin Camera Obscura to create a photographic exhibition, performance moments and screened outcomes.

The  Art Matters series provides ongoing meaningful arts participation for adults living with a disability for whom there are no other arts opportunities offered in the Wimmera region. The project will continue to be supported by local visual artist Anthony Pelchen, dance artist Amy Anselmi and videographic artist David Bowe and this year introduces Arts Access Victoria artist Rhian Hingklys’ Camera Obscura practice.

The Island is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria.
