What is Talking Art?
Presented by the Blue Mountains Creative Arts Network BMCAN, Talking Artz is about providing events and functions to enable artists to gather both formally and informally to support creative practice across diverse arts modalities in the Blue Mountains. It is a regional social and cultural network, to provide opportunities to empower artists to build and develop their practice with the support of others within their community.
Talking Artz will take place in the gallery every 1st Saturday of the month.
Starts at 3pm, with a break around 4pm for drinks and nibbles by donation.
All Welcome. Come and join us and bring your friends!
December – Graham Tribe & Tim Jones
Title: Fluidity Project – Exploring Collaborations
Concept: Fluidity Project, is an experimental participatory multi-arts project that explores ideas through creating works in a collaborative virtual space, using the principle of the Creative Commons, where appropriation and referencing one another’s works is allowed and encouraged. The project aims to establish a method of sharing and using various art elements from all genres, visual, music, film, written etc. It is based on a form licensing agreement known as Creative Commons where a creator wants to give other people the right to share, use, and build upon a work that they (the author) have created.
In our concept CC provides a creator flexibility and protects the people who use or redistribute an author’s work from concerns of copyright infringement if they attribute the original author in any work they subsequently create. If artwork generates income, the final artist receives the income and does not need to share the income but they do need to attribute all contributed works.
Please come along to our next Talking ArtZ event at Nolan on Lovel Gallery, 3pm. If you have ever wanted to explore art-making in diverse collaborative ways, this event is for you. Tim and Graham will be discussing the potential of creative commons – an exciting proposal for working collaboratively in an open creative system.
Please bring your friends, and some food and drinks to share for this end of year event.
