When is a traumatised community ready for art?

Creative recovery is not only about art-making in disaster-impacted communities, but also the duty of care towards artists in this space.

Site & Situation, initiated by the City of Gold Coast and curated by Swell Sculpture Festival is a forum and workshop series designed to channel critical dialogue around public art.

Scotia Monkivitch, Executive Officer at Creative Recovery Network is one of the speakers, and will present ‘How Public Art Can Help Communities with Disaster Recovery’.
