Building on the Ardugula program in 2018

In 2018 Ardugula Aboriginal Corporation began working on its community reparation funded program. I worked initalized work with the corporation in the development of heritage trails, a museum upgrade and indigenous language support. When this happens, the focus of work will be on this re-engagement with country in the Macumba and Kata Karu regions of South Australia.

It's probable  there will be other new place-based opportunities coming along in future. I'm interested to discover how remote communities can overcome the destructive influence of urbanization.  I hope we can rally more and more support to reveal the role artists can have in overcoming the economic paralysis and deadlock created by concentrating wealth in cities.
