Ever wondered who the streets of Trott Park are named after? Dig deeper and you’’ll discover that Brack, Heysen, Nolan, Klippel or Drysale are just some of the 40 artists named in this unique suburb. Want to be part of a project that explores this and more histories of Trott Park? A community engaged project is taking place right now and we are seeking people to be involved.
In 2017 OSCA worked with the artists Ann-Marie Green, Henry-Jock Walker and James Dodd to undertake a long term community engaged project that focused on Trott Park’s unique claim to fame as the suburb with the most streets named after Australian artists.
Through a diversity of artistic strategies and multi-layered approaches linked directly to a community consultation process, the team has developed a series of design based responses and participatory activities that…. link the processes of adventure and the exploration of new landscapes to strategies of working en plein air and the artists’ camp.
