Primary School Residency - 2015
Hello Future! was an Artist in Residence project in which year 2 & 3 students and teachers from Currumbin Valley State School and artists from Imaginary Theatre will work together on a 10 week multi-arts learning collaboration exploring potential futures, environment, citizenship, creativity and digital literacy.
Artists, students and teachers worked together to create digital content, collated and shared online, as an digital time capsule for the future.
The Hello Future! content was also be showcased in two outcome events in the form of digital street art installations. Artwork by and featuring our young artists lit up local buildings. Animation, video and text will shine bright, towering above passers by as they stopped and stared at this streetside spectacle. Meanwhile, wireless headphones carrying children’s voices with epic ideas for the future, asked their audiences to stop, listen, and reflect on the future of their communities.
At the first event, digital content created and curated by students in collaboration with artists & teachers was shown at Currumbin Valley State School in a special installation adventure for students, families, staff and the broader school community as a celebration of the opening of the school’s brand new building.
At the second and third events, the Hello Future content appeared in pop-up 'urban lounge room' at Broadbeach Mall as part of Bleach* Festival.
