BEYOND is a program of exchange, residency and presentation.
BEYOND connects and deepens regional partnerships and arts practice beyond borders and boundaries. It encourages a new arts ecology focused on mobility for organisations, regional artists, audiences and communities.
Through reciprocal programs of exchange, residency, and presentation between five regional partners BEYOND will
- grow safe creative spaces
- long term relationships
- increase mobility for regional artists and regional arts organisations on a national scale.
BEYOND is a PUNCTUM INC initiative in partnership with four regional organisations, funded by Australia Council and the Sunshine Coast Regional Arts Development Fund.
Currently BEYOND involves
- PUNCTUM INC (VIC)
- Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennale (KCAT) (VIC)
- ArtsCoast Sunshine Coast Council (QLD)
- Horizon Festival - Sunshine Coast Council (QLD)
- Situate (TAS) and Country Arts (SA).
Courtney Scheu and Itamar Freed were selected through an EOI process.
The artists will participate in a residency at KCAT in October 2021 as part of the Triennale - aiming to develop context and experience of Kyneton with the view to develop new work for presentation in the next festival in 2024.
About Courtney and Itamar
Itamar Freed (America/Israel) and Courtney Scheu (Australia) are collaborative interdisciplinary artists who split their time between the Sunshine Coast, London, Tel Aviv and New York. The duo collaborate and aim to create representations of place that are a synthesis of natural landscape, history and people, transferred as a layered experience to an audience. They create work across forms of dance, sculpture, video and photography.
