Tubbut’s artist-in-residence Samara McIlroy has hit the road with PASSIONfruit – Portable Community Museum.
Samara is one of the key inspirations behind the (f)route project.
She is working in the Deddick Valley – based in Tubbut. (but she is on loan to the Swifts Creek community today doing Digital Storytelling) (travelling miiiiles through our glorious east gippsland countryside to be there. – thanks Sam).
You can see some of her Museum Collection here https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150947762229046.538281.816929045&type=1
AND (fyi) IN MAY 2012 …
Samara will be presenting her project at the (f)route ‘symposium’ (hmmm (f)route salad?) in Lakes Entrance – in MAY (21-25, dates tbc SOON).
With Chaco Kato (who has been the artist in residence in Swifts Creek). http://www.thecraftblog.org.au/chaco-kato-at-froute/
and (we hope) Georgia Snowball – who workshopped (f)route in Goongerah during the Such is Life punk festival – and is soon to hit the beach at Mallacoota.(28/29 April).
