Project Description

Project Brief

AN OUTDOOR ART EXHIBITION THAT CELEBRATED THE WRITTEN WORD

This project took place over two months.  Ten writers were invited to compose short written pieces in response to ten distinct locations in Bourbong Street.  The written pieces were then passed on to ten visual artists, who responded by creating and installing temporary artworks at the locations.

TEXT AS ART was a celebration of the unique built environment of Bundaberg and was on display for the duration of WriteFest and the Crush Festival in 2017.
