Monday 8 August 2011 saw the start of Tura’s 2011 Remote Artist In Residence program in collaboration with Warmun Art Centre, with Philip Samartzis wending his way from Melbourne to the remote community of Warmun in the East Kimberley. For the next 5 weeks Philip will be working with artists at the Centre, students at Ngalangangpum School and the community at large to create a new surround sound work.
The 2011 Regional Residency is sponsored by Heathway to promote the “Respect Yourself, Respect Your Culture” Message, Horizon Power and the Sidney Myer Fund and is supported by RMIT.
The project was made possible by the Australian Government’s regional arts program, the Regional Arts Fund, which gives all Australians better access to opportunities to practice and experience the arts. The Regional Arts Fund is administered in Western Australia by Country Arts (WA) Inc.
