Sydney Opera House: Creative Learning in Leadership

Have spent the last two school terms working with Liverpool Boys High School as part of Sydney Opera House’s Creative Learning in Leadership Program. Initially I led professional development with 6 teachers and then worked with a group of YR9 boys to create a short film looking at Sustainability. The completed work was screened at the Opera House for friends and family – was a great event very well received.

Below are a few stills from the film you can view the whole film on the Opera House’s Facebook Page

Sydney University MBA

Just worked with MBA students on a module looking at Creativity and Business. My role was to support and guide the students to create a series of installation pieces at Redfern Town Hall. Given that most of the students hadn’t created anything artistic since leaving school it was a good event and a learning curve for me.

Our Australian Family Routes has just been featured in BIG kids magazine. It’s available to buy at the MCA or online. If you’re looking for an excellent guide to contemporary collaborative practice between artists and young people here it is! It’s also beautifully printed and would make a great present (I take no commission!…..;)

I am pleased to announce that I have just completed my latest commission: Our Australian Family Routes at Casula Shopping Mall, Sydney, Australia. 
 
The artwork was co-created with YR.3 students of Casula Public School and is my largest print to date at a whopping 28 metres long. It has been commissioned by Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre to coincide with the Mall’s 30th Anniversary. This is their first large scale public art work. I’d like to thank the staff of Casula Public School, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Casula Mall and my install assistant and paste up artist Natalia Zajaz.
 
It was demanding install and has already been greeted with interest and comment from the visiting public.

  1. Thank you for having proceeded to re-write the name of Israel, but how come you did not add the name of Malta?
    Kind regards.

  2. Thanks for your post Giampiero and interest in the work. The text panel that accompanies the mural explains the countries listed are the countries of origin of the students not of the whole surrounding area of Casula which would be far more! After the original mural was printed it was brought to my attention that I missed out some countries of student origin so when I carried out the maintenance the other week it was an opportunity to add them in. I’m sorry but none of the students came from Malta!

    thanks again for your post

    best wishes

  3. Thanks for the explanation why Malta is not in the list of countries appear in the murals. Unfortunately Yesterday someone tried to erase even once again Israel despite you had put it very high, unfortunately fanaticism has no limits. I believe that we should not make winning the fanatics so, please, the name of Israel should restore again.
    Kind regards,

    Giampiero Pallotta
