  Artwork Issue 63 - Participation - Dec 2005

' participation and engagement' - why bother?

This issue asks the contributors to look at different layers of participation and engagement in CCD
with the aim to create an argument which articulates that we must be bothered to engage and to participate....
either as individuals and /or collectives.

why bother? because:
Cultural context is essential in facilitating appropriate and adequate engagement strategies.

why bother? because:
Collective Art-Making is about co-creating and understanding local context

why bother? because:
city/town/place vitality depends on people's interaction and engagement with place

why bother? because....
There is an implicit theme about barriers to participation but I think we must show the relevance to engage with all members of and types of communities rather than point to the barriers in themselves....


  Artwork Issue 62 - 3D Symposium - Sept 2005

Artwork magazine 62 cover image Artwork Issue 62 - 3D Symposium – Discuss – Document – Disseminate.

3D, a symposium of artists working with communities, to develop an overview of current practices and discuss issues of development: community; professional and creative.

Produced in collaboration with the National Editorial Committee and the 3D editorial team, this issue of artwork attempts to articulate and extend some of the discussions that took place, and the recommendations made during the 3D Symposium.
This issue begins with berni m janssen's article, which gives an overview of the Symposium which provides the context for this edition, a sense of where it and the contributions came from.

In this issue of Artwork the experiences and reflections of those artists involved in 3D and in ccd work in Victoria have been featured for a number of reasons; not least because the concerns of these artsworkers have been so well explored and articulated through the 3D Symposium model; and maybe they raise questions for us all.

The articles included identify certain issues of working in ccd which exist for many practitioners, artists, or artsworkers, whatever their practice.

Enjoy this issue of Artwork, and as happens with each edition, we have set up an online forum on ccd.net to continue the discussion about issues raised. If you've not seen or used the site yet, it would be well worth your while to get online and register as member to not only receive regular national ccd updates but also contribute to the ongoing discussions.

  Artwork 61 - Leadership and Activism - June 2005

Artwork magazine 61 cover image What do the terms Leadership and Activism mean in a current context? Interestingly, the arts and cultural sectors have become very active since the Ozco restructure proposal was announced in Dec 2004 but have they adopted a 'policy of taking direct and militant action to achieve a political or social goal'. Does ccd work always have elements of both leadership and activism? Is it inherent in the philosophy of ccd and how does this translate to action. This edition examines current leadership theory and practice and contextualises the activism occurring in relation to the Ozco restructure proposal by the sector.

The Editorial Committee has deemed this issue of Artwork as very important and will be distributing as far and wide as possible. A PDF of the entire issue is available for download below the contents listing. If you wish to subscribe to Artwork

ARTWORK 61 – POSTERS FORUM
In considering the images for this edition we contrasted the works of activist group 'We are all Boat People' with historical images from CAN SA archives of political posters. We have details for some of these images but we put out the call to readers for help to fill in the gaps in regard to these posters. If you were involved in the process, production or printing of any of these images or if you are interested in a discussion about the Australian political posters we have set up this online forum for you to share you thoughts stories or involvement with any of these works.
