Beyond Refuge: Citizens Opens Friday

Artists from asylum seeker and refugee backgrounds reflect on the fundamental rights of every human being to freedom and peace in our Beyond Refuge: Citizens exhibition opening on Friday.

These photo and video works combine the developing talents of our Curious Creators with experienced artists who are recent arrivals in Australia, drawn from our community workshops run in partnership with Settlement Services International.

The exhibition runs until 11 September at the Marsden Gallery in the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. It's part of CPAC's larger Refugees exhibition, featuring famous artists ranging from Marc Chagall to Yoko Ono.

Special offer for all friends of CuriousWorks: you and a guest are invited to the private opening of the exhibitions at 6pm Friday. Please RSVP:

When the Tide Comes In Next Chapter

Return to the Colony website from Wednesday next week for a new chapter in our When the Tide Comes In web series set in 22nd century Western Sydney.

Sam reveals more of her childhood memories from growing up in the compound. We last learnt of her father's addiction to the 'empathiser', and how she met her rebellious friend Valerie. She is telling these stories to the friendly drone SAALA in exchange for its knowledge of her past.

Urban Stories Unveiled in September

Set in the suburbs and homes of Western Sydney, Urban Stories is a suite of film and theatre scripts in development, written by young local artists emerging from our Curious Creators Writers Group.

You are invited to be part of the first audience for these works in progress.  Join us for a FREE evening of film screenings and theatre scene readings (performed by actors from the Powerhouse Youth Theatre Ensemble and other local talent) at Riverside Theatres in Parramatta on Friday 23 September.
