Poets, Writers, Composers
Curators Statement & Briefing: ON ISLANDS

Islands conjure many romantic notions of the exotic, treasures lost and found, adventure, romance,isolation, mystery, opportunity, hardship. They have been the muse of creative thinkers, artists, writers,musicians, scientists, explorers, rogues and entrepreneurs across the whole history of humanity. For many, Islands are a place of escape, somewhere that provides time and space for thinking and reflecting that affords anonymity, seclusion, rest or retreat. For others they are a challenge for ingenuity,resolve and tenacity, a testing ground for ideas and innovations. Some view them full of opportunity, for reinvention, exploration or commerce. We all live in/on islands, real or virtual, tiny or large, remote or connected, challenging or idyllic, political or cultural, disciplinary or religious, philosophical or psychological … Many of us live across a number of Islands and are adept at moving between them. Residents adapt to the pace and rhythm of their Islands. They are resourceful, using the limited resources they have to respond to meeting their needs. Innovation and community collaboration is necessary for survival and develops rich and diverse cultural structures. We can learn from visiting islands, sharing experiences and iterating approaches.
As a member of Eramboo’s community we invite you to participate in a creative collaboration culminating in a series of exhibitions on the Eramboo site in the second half (October / November) of 2014. We will pair visual artists with poets, writers, composers as creative foils for each other. Pairs will work together to produce either one collaborative work or a pair of complimentary works informed by a collaborative exploration of the concept of Islands.
To confirm your participation in this project please respond with a 2 – 3 paragraph written response to ‘On Islands’. We will use your response to determine your creative pairing. Also supply samples of previous works and brief bio (no more then 150 words).
Eramboo is very fortunate to announce that Selena Griffith, Senior Lecturer in the School of Design Studies at COFA will be curating the Eramboo Summer Series “On Islands” 2014.

Submission deadline:
Monday 28th April, 2014
