New­man’s Art at the Heart Artist Res­i­dency will re­turn next month, bring­ing three in­ter­na­tion­ally renowed artists to the re­gion.

Shire of East Pil­bara chief ex­ec­u­tive Allen Cooper ap­proved the Art at the Heart project four years ago, recog­nis­ing that art and cul­tural op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able to peo­ple in re­mote com­mu­ni­ties were of­ten lim­ited. Since 2014, it has be­come one of Aus­tralia’s rich­est artist in res­i­dence schemes.

This is the fi­nal year of the project, which will bring back the three artists — Ya­suaki Onishi from Ja­pan, Han­nah Quin­li­van from Can­berra, and Nige­rian-born Olaniyi Akindiya.

The artists will work with Mel­bourne cu­ra­tor Damian Smith to de­liver the ex­hi­bi­tion, which runs from Septem­ber 22-Oc­to­ber 8 in the EPAC build­ing.
