RTRFM presents Creative Spaces

 

In 2016, RTRFM was awarded a Catalyst Community Arts Fund grant to produce a unique, intriguing project that seeks to understand the creative process and the spaces that inspire it.

RTRFM’s Creative Spaces Project involved 11 young people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds, aged between 12 and 20, with limited photography experience.

Each participant underwent an interviews training course, facilitated by RTRFM’s Head of Training, Sarah Tout. They were then mentored in the basic principles of photography by local photographer, Daniel Craig aka Matsu. From there, each participant was paired with a local artist, to visit their creative space and interview them on their creative process and the space that facilitates and inspires their creativity.

Under the guidance of Matsu, each participant photographed the artists while they worked, capturing the creative process in action. An incredibly talented, diverse group of award winning artists was selected, with the resulting photos being publicly exhibited at The Bird, WIlliam St, Northbridge, WA in August 2017.
