EXPERIMENTA DIRECTOR FARE THEE WELL
I’ve been at Experimenta for 5 years, and during this time, I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the most incredible artists, colleagues and Board members.
From mid March, I’ll be starting in the role of Director of Visual/Digital Arts at the Banff Centre, Canada. This is a significant international appointment and I am really grateful for the opportunities, skills and networking that my role as Director of Experimenta has presented me with.
Its been a privilege to work at Experimenta and to contribute to its rich history and to the broader visual arts sector in Australia. I’ll truly miss being an everyday part of Experimenta’s life and wish the team the very best and continued successes.
With that, I’ll be strapping on my snowshoes and hope that for many of us, this isn’t good-bye, but an opportunity to discover new partnerships and possibilities.
Experimenta is seeking a new Executive Director. Please see position description for more details

You Were in my Dream is an enchanting stop-motion paper animation in which audiences interact by lending their faces to characters and choosing their own adventure story. Commissioned by Experimenta, this artwork is by Melbourne artists Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine.
AUSTRALIA DAY AT FEDERATION SQUARE
As part of Federation Square's Australia Day Weekend program, Experimenta Media Arts presented a screening of three animations from the Dust Echoes series, produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation in association with Djilpin Arts Aboriginal Corporation.
The Dust Echoes series is a collection of twelve Aboriginal dreamtime stories collected from the Wugullar (Beswick) Community in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory that tell stories of love, loyalty, duty to country and Aboriginal custom and law.
Made to screen on ABC TV, these stories were recorded as audio and interpreted as short animated movies by some of Australia's most talented emerging animators. They have since gone on to enjoy screenings at film and animation festivals all over the world, to great critical acclaim.
