Ashleigh Bunter of A.BUNTER PROJECTS (who is curating an exhibition at RAYGUN next year) has in the last week, had a birthday, and received 15,000 from ARTSLINK Queensland to bring to fruition an Artist Run Initiative Festival which, like festivals such as SAFARI, in Sydney celebrates the Artist Run initiative as an integral element of arts culture. The Range Festival will focus on ideas, education, exposure and dialogue,facilitating tours, talks, workshops etc to create a platform to discuss and acknowledge the Artist run Initiative. Ashleigh is a local mover and shaker, who has traveled extensively, curated shows in Toowoomba, Sydney and Brisbane and is a great arts writer. Watch Ash, she brings events together with such precision and professionalism it’s a pleasure to watch.
During this time RAYGUN is working with American social practitioner Lee Walton(this is a great website) on the first international experiential art exhibition, which will bring people from all over the world together to undertake activities all on November 1st.
