From May through December 2021, Blur Projects is calling for artists to activate the UNSEEN initiative. A mobile public artspace animated by workshops, performances, and exhibitions across disciplinary lines, UNSEEN works to place misunderstood or ignored experiences of homelessness at the centre of civic dialogue. During these months, a mobile tiny house will move between locations and landmarks in Sydney’s CBD and inner suburbs. Artists with lived experience of homelessness, or whose work attends to the issue, are invited to submit their work for display in the house.
Artists on the program include Michelle Wilkie, Linda Worlond, Nadeena Dixon, Belinda Mason, Dieter Knierim, Denise Beckwith, and Aunty Dixie Link Gordon. Blur and our partners are pleased to offer mentorship and support to artists to develop their work, and also accept works already fully realised. Artists might choose to be or be shown in the space for any length of time they see fit — be it even a day.
Organisations which have arts-based programs are also invited to use the tiny house and unseen car to showcase the painting, photography, poetry, song, dance, craft and performance produced by women who have or are experiencing homelessness.
Please email Belinda at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0414787788 to discuss your proposal.
