In April and May 2014, performance and installation artist Hiromi Tango hosted drop-in workshops engaging the broader community of Geraldton. Collectively, all individual pieces of artwork that created by participants contributed to building a public sculpture for exhibition on 8 May 2014. Hiromi arrived in Geraldton after working on the Busselton component of FIVE, which was highly successful and engaged more than 1,500 people.
Hiromi facilitating workshops at the ACDC Gallery, who kindly opened their doors to enable this exciting project to take place. ACDC is a leading community arts and cultural development organisation in the Mid-West region and became a valuable local partner in the FIVE project. About 1,500 people also participated in the Geraldton sculpture project.
FIVE Geraldton was a whole-of-community project, with ppeople invited to drop in along, with family or friends. The workshop space was warm and welcoming and Hiromi and participants worked with the theme of fishing nets, and the coastal dune colours of the local area. The numerous small post-it notes on which participants inscribed the things they care about, became part of the digital artwork produced by Craig Walsh for the project, titled NEST: A Caring Symphony.
