FIVE has commenced in Paraburdoo
Posted by Jacque Homer
FIVE Paraburdoo is now in full swing after months of consultation with the Rio Tinto team in Perth as well as in Paraburdoo. Risk management issues, communication strategies and logistical matters are now in place to enable lead artist Alex Mickle’s concept of creating a large public sculpture with the mining workforce to become a reality, or at least we are now a few steps closer.
The next stage of the project involves the Superintendents briefing the entire crew working in Paraburdoo about FIVE and identifying who is interested in being involved.
Paraburdoo’s Picnic Day is on the 18 October and FIVE Paraburdoo will be launched to the entire community then. It will be exciting to meet the Paraburdoo community on that day and generate interest for the public art sculpture workshops as well as the whole-of-community workshops, which will commence in April next year, when performance and installation artist Hiromi Tango embarks on a two-week artist residency in Paraburdoo..
