Building on the work of the Ramsay Place Working Group and 2015 ExpressWay Arts project Express Collective, multi-form artist Brienna Macnish was the artist in residence at Ramsay Place in Noarlunga Centre from 17 - 21 February 2016.
During her residency, Brienna explored ‘Third Places’ and the myth of their accessibility by recording interviews with young people who inhabit Ramsay Place.
Ramsay Place is a third place where young people come together to socialise, connect, escape and just be.
Third Places are welcoming and open to anyone and everyone, they are the places we go to meet with the people we know and perhaps with people we don’t. But what happens when individuals or communities don’t have the social, cultural or financial capital to feel comfortable in these Third Places? What happens when people – especially young people – try and create Third Places for themselves? – Brienna Macnish
Using her observations and the audio from interviews Brienna created a 25 minute audio work to be experienced in Ramsay Place .
ExpressWay Arts is an initiative of Carclew undertaken jointly with City of Onkaparinga and assisted by Government of South Australia through Arts South Australia.
