“Working with Outer Urban Projects has been the most amazing, challenging and enjoying experience. Ranging from after school rehearsals in a dance crew, to gigs and workshops. These have all helped me grow more confident in myself and in what I love doing.”

WEDNESDAYS & THURSDAYS with Jenni Large and Georgia Rudd

TAKEOVER at Parliament Steps | 6 March 2022

Curators Grace McQuilten and Amy Spiers (RMIT School of Art) had partnered with Dewi Cooke (The Social Studio), David Mackenzie (Youthworx) and Irine Vela (Outer Urban Projects), and their three organisations that foster the creativity of young people from culturally diverse, asylum seeker, First Nations, neurodivergent and disabled communities through training and employment in fashion design, digital media production and performing arts respectively. Together, the curatorial team had commissioned young artists from each art organisation to present works that activated Melbourne’s public spaces, and Bus Projects’ and ACCA’s institutional platforms.
