What is public art? How can it transform our local environment? We have invited primary and secondary students from across NSW to reimagine public space within their local communities.
Year 7 (100 students)
Year 7 students of DHSVAD have created their own political party, the eARTh party (the art sits within the earth) out of concern for the environment and the climate change crisis. The public art work included a performative protest march through the annual Dulwich Hill Street Fair on Sunday 15 September, 2019 and concluded with an exhibition of the protest material at the Seaview Gallery. The public engaged by ‘voting’ in a polling booth and leaving behind a message to be communicated to local politicians and/or shared as part of the artwork. The project has been supported by the school's P&C and the Inner West Council.
