Working with the community
Woden Arts is proud to be collaborating with local community organisations, secondary schools and colleges to provide street art workshops and mentorship opportunities for students and locals.
To date we have facilitated two workshops – one for adults and one for students of Melrose High.
The Melrose High students worked with local artist Kirrily Jordan to transform the EVO energy box in Eddison park, opposite Canberra College.
This project brought together the ACT Government’s Graffiti Management Coordinator, EVO Energy, Woden Arts, and students from Melrose High. The final piece is very beautiful, and worth checking out if you are heading past Eddison park!
The adult workshop provided an opportunity for Woden locals to participate in the creation of a mural designed by south Coast artist Bjarni Wark. Bjarni was engaged to paint a large, brightly coloured mural to enliven the hoardings surrounding the Lovett Tower in the Woden Town Square, and provided an opportunity for the community to pick up a brush and join in the fun.
The mural is sponsored by Transport Canberra and City Services, and the wonderful session Bjarni provided for Woden Arts was facilitated by Woden Community Service and our Woden Arts Officer.
Woden Arts is planning more street art and mural painting opportunities for the near future.
