Key Dates

Exhibition Launch – Friday July 21

‘Artists in Volatile Landscapes’ will run from June 24 – September 24, 2023 at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. Showcasing new art works across mediums, artists have responded to the question, ‘What does the future of your region look like?’ Artists have engaged with critical thinkers across sectors (science, environment, agriculture) and consulted with their communities to explore key issues affecting their regions, revealing hopes and fears for the future. This group exhibition is provocative and contemplative and raises critical question of our times, encouraging us to think deeply about the future of our regions.

Join artists and associates for dinner at Casula’s Bellbird Café from 7.30 – 9.30pm.
