Artist in Residence Train Project - Shepparton Festival 2016
Creating art on the V/Line train from Shepparton to Southern Cross
The train residency was a three-week practice based arts residency that created a transient space for the participating artists to document the shifting terrain on the vline train service from Shepparton to Southern Cross.
Local artists Serana Hunt, Mini Leug, Bruce Hughes and 10 members of the Shepparton Textiles Artist Group explored social and cultural conditions of place through their chosen medium, individual memory and personal experiences. At least one artist travelled on the train daily during the 17 days of the Festival, 13 artists made over 50 journeys.
