PLATFORM, is a multi-sensory exhibition space touring festivals across the Riverina in 2019.
A co- initiative between IDEAS and Eastern Riverina Arts, PLATFORM aims to increase participation and visibility of both artists and people with disability at community events across the region.
PLATFORM is housed in a purpose-built, portable, accessible ‘space’ adapted from a shipping container. Its unique arrangement allows the container to be configured as a sensory space, chill out area, exhibition space or small stage. The project will travel to ten festivals across the Riverina over an 18-month period.
The project will feature a sensory-art instillation by Sydney-based artist, Bliss Cavanagh, whose designs have been exhibited at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Noosa Regional Gallery and Australian Museum. Bliss’ personal experience of living with Tourette syndrome plays a substantial part in her work and motivates her to create spaces for others living with disabilities.
