ARTISTS HOST COMMUNITY TALKS .
Organisers of the Vast project are inviting people from across the Pilbara to Cossack for Vast Community Sessions and to meet some of the artists and see the project in action.
Funded by the City of Karratha, the Vast project will bring more than 25 artists from all over Australia, including musicians Paul Dempsey and Bernard Fanning, to Cossack for three days to create, record and collaborate to produce an album, paintings, film, a photo series and other works inspired by the Pilbara.
On Sunday, from 9am-12.30pm, several of the project’s participating artists will facilitate a series of workshops and Q&A sessions.
Scott Wise and Rowena Wise will be talking about lutherie, the art of making wooden string instruments, Panics frontman Jae Laffer will talk about getting music from your head to the radio and singer-songwriter Olympia will host a Q&A session and speak about her career. Aimee Chapman and Qynn Beardman will host a talk about independent music careers and alternative jobs in the business, and Lis Johnson and Baby Guerilla will speak about their art forms, approach and careers.
There will also be a general meet-and-greet and open chat with the Vast artists and crew.
City of Karratha mayor Peter Long said the city is excited to support the commission.
