  Thread:   1980's
  Date Posted: 2002-12-09 10:22:19
Author: TRICIA

Lots of the people I was working with in the 80's are no longer working in the field. (sustaining a ccd practice would be a good discussion topic.)

Back then it was called community arts and seemed to involve everything from kite making workshops to Death Defying Theatre creating plays with coal miner's stories.

It was also the era of Year of the Tree, Year of the Oceans, etc and much work was done in regional areas attracting project funding under these banners.

I was working with CoastArts - Central Coast Community Arts group who organised the Women and the Arts events in that area. We worked with various community groups on murals, park landscape designs,
a mobile holiday arts activity van, festivals and an arts survey which saw the local TAFE introduce arts courses and the council appoint a community arts officer.

For anyone interested I am currently working on a conference at Parramatta Riverside Theatres in March next year on The Art of Celebration exploring the role of arts and ccd in local festivals and celebrations.One of our sessions will explore the history. It is aiming to bring artists and community development officers (mainly western sydney councils) together to talk over different approaches to festivals. We welcome contributions to a display of festival projects to promote the work of artists.
