Light in Winter 2013: When does the light turn on?
What is your experience of racism?
Change Media explored a concept to disrupt social beliefs about the movement of people and racism, titled, 'The Perfect Refugee', Shakespeare in a Time of Crisis'. We worked in collaboration with artists from refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds, in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. In 2012 we ran an intensive, creative lab with artists from a refugee background and the Bell Shakespeare Company.
The final creative outcome was a large scale public art projection hosted by FedSquare, and a series of web-based interventions.
We worked with a team of artists from the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre to create a 30min video installation for Melbourne’s Federation Square. The project includes a behind the scenes documentary and a series of 50 online video provocations for the Light in Winter 2013.
