THE CACHE CURATING
In a world of naf acronyms, I thought I would add another one. CACHE stands for Culture Art; Collections; Heritage & Events. As an independent curator and marketing consultant, my work and research has been dedicated to and inspired by developing engaging experiences for audiences in the creative and tourism economies.
Cache, the word, has some interesting connotations that ring true to what CACHE Curating is about.
(1) a collection of items that are stored in hidden or inaccessible places
Art and heritage collections, are often in storage and difficult to access. Bringing collections and social history stories to light through interpretation and research, is one of the key functions of curating and developing engaging audience experiences. CACHE curating investigate memory and the way we store and access them to tell our stories..
2) in the online world, cache also refers to digital memory and how data is stored closer to the processor to reduce response time latency.
Memory, response, collections, storage, display, hidden meanings, digital communication and design, creation and collaboration are all part of connecting material culture to audiences, creating stimulating, engaging and entertaining experiences. The digital environment offers inventive ways to access data and deliver immersive experiences for audiences.
Specialising in the GLAM and Tourism industries, CACHE services include:
curating art and heritage exhibitions
writing marketing strategies and plans
developing and managing events
creating public programs
research and reports
BEYOND 50%:ART AGAINST GENDER BASED VIOLENCE
Beyond 50% is an exhibition that explores art that is made by artists, collectives and the community to activate social change. Often referred to as artivism, activist art was championed by the feminist artists of the 1960's to campaign against gender inequality. Violence against women is one of the biggest barriers to gender equality and a consequence of changes in gender equality today. This exhibition brings together international, Indigenous and local artists/collectives who are adopting art making to change our social values towards rape and domestic violence.
The exhibition opened on 7 March with an official launch with Kim McConville, Executive Director , Beyond Empathy held on International Womens' Day, 8 March 2019.
Supported by the City of Ballarat and the Art Gallery of Ballarat was held at Backspace Gallery, Art Gallery of Ballarat.
