‘William crafted a comprehensive professional development tour, and met with leading organisations and practitioners who are at the forefront of audio description, inclusive and accessible arts practices in Europe. The connections, skills and experience he acquired during his time overseas will be invaluable to his work advancing the professional audio description sector in Australia.’
‘In February 2017, Aurelia commenced a 12 week position as freelance guest Poetry Editor at the Fanzine (US). Her poetry chapbook was launched at the beginning of 2017 in London.’
‘It was a positive and strong turn out from both the studio and the public. I was able to engage with many viewers and hear their response to the work ... having to organise an opening in a foreign city was extremely challenging. Yet the end result was incredibly satisfying and certainly a career milestone; to have a solo presentation of work in New York City.’
‘Amy’s work is just beautiful, its delicacy belies the heavy material and almost brutal firing process that is used to create it. We also received a lovely letter of endorsement from the Artistic Director of Ceramics, Wood and Sculpture at Anderson Ranch Arts Centre.’
‘Shona shared all information regarding her achievements overseas in such a matter of fact way that it is easy to overlook that she was extended some fantastic opportunities by an esteemed, long-established institution. She was obviously admired and respected and clearly is a very determined artist. This case study is a great example of how to surmount issues and make-good a project that could so easily have failed.’
