Open Studio: MAVA Pathfinders


Sat 27 May, 10am - 1pm


MAVA Substation, 97 Wynnum Rd, Norman Park


Metro Arts

A peek into the MAVA Pathfinder’s studio alongside a participatory site responsive experience.

The three artists in residence, James Barth, Caitlin Franzmann and Elizabeth Willing, have been working on 12 month projects that will support the growth of their careers. In the studio you will see diverse works in progress, and have a chance to hear from the artists.

As a part of the open studio, Mutual Making (a collaborative project of Caitlin Franzmann and Dhana Merritt) will host a site responsive and convivial experience. Guests will be offered an uplifting refreshment in bespoke ceramic vessels created by artist Tyza Hart to acknowledge the history of the building as an electrical substation and its transformation into a space for generating and transmitting creative energy.

Drop in anytime between 10am and 1pm on Saturday the 27th of May. Alongside the Open Studio you can also learn more about the MAVA workshop opening late in 2023, which will be open to public membership, from workshop manager Chris Howlett.
