Burragorang International Artists Workshop 2003
Circled by sandstone escarpments in a deep valley of the Blue Mountains Heritage area, twenty-one artists, invited from around Australia and the world, camped together to make art in the Australian environment. Held in the Burragorang Valley in April 2003, this event joined a network of similar Workshops world-wide, linked through the Triangle Arts Trust, a London based not-for-profit organization. The Workshops bring together artists from diverse cultures for an intensive two weeks of work, conversation, exchange of ideas and practice. They are often sited in a place that is remote and inspiring. An Open Day allows public access to the Workshop, strengthening interactions with neighbouring and visiting communities. The Burragorang event is the first such workshop in NSW (New South Wales), joining one in Western Australia, and others in more than twenty different countries around the world, from Trinidad to New York, Botswana to Britain.
