Art and Creativity- Within and Beyond Urban Public Spaces


On Friday 4 November, we invite you to a symposium at The Link, Ginninderry’s Community and Information Centre, followed by Friday afternoon drink.

At this event, an expert panel will discuss how they have creatively engaged in Ginninderry’s public spaces within and beyond the built environment.

Artists, including G.W.Bot will discuss their involvement with major public artworks, and with the Ginninderry Design Library.

Redbox Design Group will provide insights into how designers translate historical, environmental, and cultural studies to understand, identify, and communicate a sense of place within Ginninderry’s urban and natural spaces. Redbox Design Group are engaged by Ginninderry to provide excellence in urban design and landscape architecture. In 2022 they also produced the Ginninderry Interpretation Masterplan. The Masterplan will inform the design of the new public realm, incorporating old and new stories inherent to Ginninderry.

Also presenting is Dr. Bronwyn Berman, sculptor, public artist, studio artist, jewellery designer and academic. Bronwyn’s PhD thesis, “A Deleuzian Re-Imagining of Art and The Ecovillage”, re-imagines creativity and the ecovillage itself as a work of art, illustrating the potential for inherent transformative processes and approaches for creative communities.
