Keynote Panel - Mark Making
Panellists: Anderson Hunt – Founder and Artistic Director, Down Street Studios, Kristal Matthews, artist Wilay Designs

Our panel of public artists and curators will talk about the nature and importance of mark making in the context of art, community and heritage. The session will focus on the convergence of heritage and art - in the context of responding to place and why this is important. Galleries, artists, developers, designers and other stakeholders often collaborate on the creation, promotion of and engagement with artworks outside their facilities and within the public realm. Why is this important, what is the role of the artist and curators and what are the key things that we should be thinking about when making these marks on the world – acknowledging heritage and making history anew!
