Thinking Local follows on from the Arts Centre's successful 2017 project Grow: Places for People, where artists explored issues surrounding urban growth and presenting alternative solutions.

The Arts Centre continues to ask artists to examine the importance of our local neighbourhoods and the actions we take within them. Artists were encouraged to look at local spaces and actions, including permaculture and vegetable patches in backyards, community gardens, inclusive public spaces, local stories and significant sites.

How can artists highlight the significance of local actions that have a big impact on our lives? Artist works will explore the concept of Thinking Local in relation to:

  • Canterbury-Bankstown;
  • Their local environment;
  • Community connections;
  • Our environment;
  • Sustainability; and
  • Food usage.

The use of innovative materials, including those that are environmentally sustainable and eco-friendly, was encouraged where possible.
