A Railroad Switch in Time: South Eveleigh Case Study, Presentation by Daniel Mudie Cunningham (Australia), Director, Programs, Carriageworks

Description

Drawing on the history of South Eveleigh and its adjacent northern precinct, Cunningham outlines Carriageworks' methodology of developing and delivering an integrated Public Art Strategy as part of the revitalisation of Eveleigh, in relation to the area's deep ties to Aboriginal history. Situated on Gadigal Land, Eveleigh is part of Redfern, a suburb on the urban fringe of Sydney which has a deeply rooted Aboriginal history: it it is the birthplace of the Aboriginal civil rights movement in Australia. Currently undergoing massive change and gentrification, Redfern is a place of Aboriginal significance and storytelling. South Eveleigh's past and present acknowledges this legacy and its narrartives of connectivity in large part through its public art. In this presentation, Cunningham will expand upon the various stages of implementing a Public Art Strategy; writing artist briefs; the artist tendering process; and the subsequent local government, heritage council and community stakeholder management intrinsic to the process. Of particular focus is the importance of consultation within the Aboriginal community.
