2015 Artist In Residence

Brienna Macnish Melbourne

Brienna is artist in residence at local Launceston retirement communities to research and develop VILLAGE for Junction Arts Festival 2016.

She will be collaborating with residents to discover personal and communal stories of ageing. Over the course of the residency, Brienna will explore the role that retirement villages play in shaping how older people see themselves and how the broader community perceives this rapidly growing demographic. VILLAGE is the second part of a site-specific trilogy of audio works about growing older in contemporary Australia.
