BUNGAREE Primary School students will work with artists-in-residence Belinda Mettam and Kate Page on the new arts project Seed as part of the AWESOME Arts Rockingham Creative Challenge.

The project encourages children to explore places and ideas central to their own well-being through interpretation of the word ‘seed’. These interpretations can take on a literal form, such as physical growth or fruit and vegetable plants, or a more metaphorical feel such as sowing, new beginnings or personal growth and identity.

The artworks created could manifest as performances, photographs, illustrations, videos, films, puppets or paintings.

“We are looking forward to introducing the concept of thought seeds to the children and exploring how our thoughts and actions can impact on our sense of self and our communities,” Ms Mettam said.

The arts initiative will explore the message of healthy eating with students.

At the end of the residency, the final artworks will be unveiled at a celebration for parents, teachers and community members.

Selected artworks or photographs will also be showcased at an exhibition in the Perth Cultural Centre in November 2016.
