Radiant Pavilion is excited to partner with Art Jewelry Forum in presenting this new opportunity for Victorian craft writers.
Supported by Creative Victoria and the City of Melbourne, Crafted Words encourages critical discourse around contemporary craft, and emphasises the value of quality writing in this objective.
We are pleased to announce the selected writers:
Anna Gray (early career)
Kylie King (established)
Meredith Turnbull (established)
Vidya Rajan (early career)
You can read all four works now by clicking the links below.
Each has been commissioned to write a 1000wd critical piece on Radiant Pavilion 2017. The theme, direction and format is entirely up to the writers but the piece must reflect on the event in some way – what they saw, issues that arose, discussions that were sparked etc. The pieces will be published online on Art Jewelry Forum.
This is an important opportunity to support and encourage critical reflection and discussion on work shown in Radiant Pavilion and issues in the field more broadly, from a range of perspectives.
The aim is not to commission four reviews of the event, rather to tease out the conversations that occur as a result of it and provide a platform to share these with the community, in Australia and abroad.
