MACHINE is CAT’s new education and development program
Artists are increasingly seeking meaningful critique and skill development opportunities beyond formal education institutions to progress their artistic work. MACHINE is CAT’s new education and development program initiated in response to the shifting expectations, knowledge and skill requirements of artists. Discursive and collegial in its approach, the program is brewed from consultation with artists and arts professionals. MACHINE
MACHINE: Whats cooking? presenters were selected through a combined process of application and invitation. The 2022 MACHINE program is yet to be determined.
As the machine generates there will be opportunity for experimenting with alternative structures for participants to develop new modes of teaching and learning to support individual and collaborative development. MACHINE is predicated on generosity and hospitality, with an acknowledgement that sharing lived experience and fostering peer-to-peer relationships, that offer access to networks and knowledge, sustain artistic practice today.
MACHINE curatorium: Robert O’Connor (artist, CAT Program Committee), Bill Hart (artist, CAT Board) and Kylie Johnson (CAT curator).
