Going Nowhere

Going Nowhere is one event happening on two sides of the globe – in Melbourne, Australia and in Cambridge, UK – exploring how artists, communities and audiences can sustainably generate international creative experiences without getting on a plane.

Through a series collaborations, Going Nowhere rehearses possible futures and embraces the shared delights of staying put and reaching out.

Going Nowhere 2012 featured the initial development of four international exchange projects that will be presented as part of Going Nowhere 2014 and performed at Cambridge Junction (UK) in January 2015 – these are:

  • 360° – Dan Koop in collaboration with Andy Field and Nathen Street
  • nowhere – one step at a time like this in collaboration with Helen Cole and Alex Bradley
  • Reach Out Touch Faith – Sarah Rodigari in collaboration with Joshua Sofaer
  • The Second Before – Willoh S Weiland in collaboration with Julian Crotti and Fritz Hauser

There will also be an interactive public forum hosted by TippingPoint Australia, a PechaKucha, a new external light projection work, an eco-sound installation, and for a little bit of fun, an Australian inspired barn dance and costume making workshop:

  • Game On!
  • PechaKucha Melbourne Volume #25
  • Permanent vs Impermanent – Olaf Meyer
  • The Everyday Imaginarium – Tristan Meecham in collaboration with everyday community experts
  • Bush Bash Barn Dance – Costume Making Workshop by Cat Rabbit and Isobel Knowles
  • Bush Bash Barn Dance – featuring music by The Bushwackers
  • The People’s Weather Report – design by Tanya Beer

The Wheeler Centre and Tallaght Community Arts, with Collective Action and Contact Studio (Dublin, Ireland) have participated through Weather Stations, a wider EU Culture Cooperation funded project exploring climate change through literature and storytelling.
