C3West Women of Fairfield wins Best Arts Program at the 2016 FBi SMAC Awards!


Women Of Fairfield (MCA C3West, PYT | Fairfield, STARTTS)

Fairfield is one of Australia’s most multicultural cities, and the impact of its cultural, ethnic and religious differences is extraordinary. This live art event, curated by Anne Loxley and Karen Therese and facilitated by Jiva Parthipan, sought to explore the complex question of what it means to be a woman in Fairfield. Cars decorated by Aboriginal, Iraqi and Khmer women blasted collages of sound and music as they did laps of Fairfield’s streets at dusk. Live and filmed performances of local female martial artists upended a male-dominated cultural tradition. The project comprised two years of collaboration with local communities, and the result was a vivid celebration of diversity and womanhood. The project artists were Kate Blackmore, Hissy Fit and Maria Tran, Claudia Nicholson, and Zoe Scoglio. Women of Fairfield was a collaboration between the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia’s C3West program, Powerhouse Youth Theatre (PYT) and the NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors (STARTTS).
