Spring has sprung and Slippry Sirkus has continued to consolidate their focus on accredited pathways to education and enterprise through utilising innovative arts based programs, in partnerships with educational institutes and R.T.O’s
Welcome to the Autumn Edition and the 2013 Year of Water Snake which according to Chinese belief means steady progress, attention to detail, focus and discipline will be necessary to achieve what you set out to create.
Bearing this in mind, Slippry Sirkus has just spent the past three months in close consultation with communities and organisations across the North West and Far West New South Wales to ensure meaningful and productive partnerships for the three year Australia Council of the Arts Creative Partnerships Initiative.
The Regional Arts Fund has provided funding for exploring the theme of identity and culture while providing skills training, an outcome of this project will be produced for the Walgett Community Festival in August.
Lead Artist for the three year initiative Reko Rennie has recently exhibited his work in India through an Arts Bank and created a public artwork with the Redfern Community.
Reko’s public artwork in Taylor Square commissioned by the City of Sydney Council continues to attract attention.
