SAW Director, Simone Sheridan, was contacted to assist in the delivery and management of an outdoor Public Art Walk to coincide with the 2011 Mattara Festival.
SAW became an in-kind sponsor to this event, with Simone offering brokering advice on how to organise and deliver this project, as well as promotional assistance. Simone’s photographs were also selected to be included within the walk. The artworks spread from Hamilton to Newcastle and were chosen on the basis that they embodied the lifestyle, spirit and community of Newcastle.
Some of the artworks have remained in place such as ‘Urban Rainforest’ by Ben Foster which was a 32 layered stencil that was then scanned for digital reproduction.
