The visual art and digital installation exhibition is one of the creative outcomes of the Love & Life Project funded by Regional Arts NSW Country Arts Support Program funding
The project has worked with young mothers from across the Macleay Valley, in particular with young mother and emerging artist Caylie Lyon to explore what it means to be a mother and the impact of motherhood on one’s identity.
The “M is for Mother’ project explores the challenges of motherhood plus community and societal attitudes and responses towards mothers, particularly young single mothers
The project process utilised Iphone, internet and social media technology to produce the digital imagery, while the visual arts component of the paintings and drawings are created by Caylie and child.
As community communities cultural development practitioners and change makers, Slippry Sirkus strives to provide regional, rural and remote communities with access to the arts and creative industries through utilising readily available tools to produce creative outcomes that provide the vehicle for expression & exploration, while providing a platform for sharing stories and influencing broader perspectives .. the CASP grant and Regional Arts NSW provide that opportunity and support.
