2017 Final year cohort of Visual Arts Specialist pre-service teachers (ECU) 2016 Invited alumni participants
Ebb and Flow: Shifting Momentum is an exhibition by beginning and experienced arts educators. It explores patterns of coming and going, push and pull as each individual negotiates the dual role of artist/arts specialist and teacher. These identities may enrich or impede each other, depending on the individual and where/when they feel they can be creative.

TILT - SANDRA HILL
2 DECEMBER TO 14 JANUARY 2018
OFFICIAL OPENING: 1 DECEMBER 6 - 8PM
Noongar artist Sandra Hill was born in South Perth in 1951. Her mother’s clan is Balardong and Wilmen people and her father’s clan is Wadandi and Menang people of Western Australia. In 1958 Sandra was forcibly removed from her family.
“Art gave me a voice, which has made me strong, it helped to guide me back home, back to my family, my identity, my people, my culture and community.”
Through her works, which have been exhibited widely and are held in major collections, Sandra is always endeavouring to diminish the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
“My initial approach to Tilt was to research the rich Indigenous heritage of the site and get a feeling for the history and the cultural activities on and around the site prior to colonisation. I am endeavouring to develop and create a series of visual images using a variety of media, that re ect rst contact with the white man and the changes that followed. Not only for the physicality of the site but also the immediate and far reaching ‘social’ impact that this encounter manifested on to my people.
