What happens after a project is done? At CuriousWorks, emerging artists build up their skills, talents and experience on various arts, community and social enterprise projects. Every project is a learning experience, no matter what your role in it is. We’ve had the privilege of seeing how the Curious Creators have grown and developed as artists, but it can be difficult to track a person’s progress just through social media posts and occasional project outcomes. So we’ve asked some of the Curious Creators to reflect back on some of their past projects and share their perspectives.

Daisy Montalvo was a part of the original FUNPARK in 2014 – and she’s now Artist in Residence and Program Co-ordinator for FUNPARK 2020. We asked her to create a creative reflection on how participating in FUNPARK meant to her all those years ago.

You can read more about Daisy and the other projects she’s been involved in here.

The FUNPARK Coalition consists of PYT | Fairfield, CuriousWorks, Blacktown Arts Centre, Learning Ground, and Bidwill Uniting.
