  Meeting of the Winds Sculpture on the Cliffs

Organisation

Elliston District Council

Project Description

Described as a celebration of a meeting of cultures, a meeting of minds and a meeting of artists', the Meeting of the Winds Sculpture on the Cliffs project, was initiated by the Elliston community and coordinated by Elliston District Council.

The Cliff Top Drive in Elliston is the most spectacular site for sculpture. The festival was a great chance to showcase the work by local and interstate sculptors. It also provided an opportunity to network with artists and to interact with the many visitors to the exhibition, says artist John Turpie.

Meeting of the Winds was linked to Encounter 2002 – a statewide coastal festival celebrating the meeting of French and English ships off the SA coast in 1802.

The Encounter 2002 theme of the meeting of three cultures, English, French and Indigenous, raised sensitive issues about early settlement in the district, and the community was keen to use art as a tool to address these issues.

The community approached Council to partner with them in creating an event for the Encounter 2002 Road Show. Council approved the project, and committed staff and resources to the event, which was co-sponsored by other government bodies and agencies. The community worked together to create, manage and oversee the exhibition.

Twenty sculptors from around Australia also took part, and thousands of visitors enjoyed the experience, creating a new audience for sculpture. In addition, Indigenous artists conducted workshops for local school students and the Elliston community.

Local and interstate artists who took part were: Cornelius John Alferink 'Talc Alf', Julie Allchurch, Dave Beaty, Bryan Burgoyne (with children from Lincoln Gardens School and several artists from KUJU Arts and Crafts), Jacqueline Coates, Helen Cox, Cindy and Bruce Durant, Bethlyn Franklin, Siv Grava, Garth P Hughes, Hayden Jarrett, Doug McLean, Kelly Milton, Roxanne Prime, Cameron Roberts, Gretchen Mercedes Small and John Turpie. A group work by the Elliston Community was also included.

Resources: The project was funded by Encounter 2002, Country Arts SA, Elliston Area School, District Council of Elliston, Elliston Presenters Group and Elliston Community Arts and Craft. The Elliston Area School and Elliston Community Information Centre printed catalogues.
