Connecting Ballarat to
Skipton by the Rail Trail
Artistic Director 2011
Ros was engaged by Vic Health and the Australia Council to develop an artist-in-community project with the four regional communities who are connected by the Ballarat to Skipton Rail Trail.
The aim of the project was to provide the community with new ways of seeing the rail trail by enhancing their experience of place and transforming local places and environments into event spaces.
Ros developed a program of residencies and workshops with puppeteers, musicians, visual artists and filmmakers, who worked with schools, community groups and recreation clubs. The program culminated in a community festival day that featured a night garden, a trail song, a parade and a short film.
