Two Places, One Space is the result of a two-year partnership between Warnbro Community High School and PICA’s Spark_lab schools learning program. This collaboration sought to unite the locations of outer-metro Warnbro with the Perth Cultural Centre through a series of projects fostering creativity, resilience, innovation, communication, academic achievement and cultural awareness.
Warnbro Community High School became a satellite to the rich and dynamic artistic programs that have been developed and presented at PICA by integrating and responding to these experiences in a symbiotic way.
Two Places, One Space shows the expanse and diversity of this partnership that involved the participation of over 700 students, over 50 teachers and 48 artists across multiple art forms and curriculum areas.
Projects included Moorditj Waankaniny (Deadly Talking), a 21st century story-telling program for young Indigenous people; Writing For Your Life, creative writing workshops for students using multi modal writing techniques; and Bespoke Artist Workshops, innovative high-level learning experiences with leading arts professionals.
