Noises at Noted

Artists: Craig Garrett

Craig Garrett gives us a peek into the national overview of the Australian arts sector by collecting local stories. You will hear stories from the artists of Noted, on what drives their creative work and whether the government facilitates or stifles our Australian cultural narrative. Using the 'noises' and sounds recorded at Noted and in Canberra, Craig will deliver a curated story of what arts funding is doing to our industry and a vision of what we can do in the age of cultural malaise. We're listening.

Let's Talk About Death, Baby!

Artists: Gabriela Georges

How do you reconcile an acceptance of mortality with a story of grief and loss? Gabriela Georges will facilitate a conversation on the elements of death, guiding the narrative through topics like funerals, relationships, bucket lists and afterlife. The dialogue may be confronting and challenging for some viewers - as confronting as death itself.

Writers' Road

Artists: Neha Kale, Anthony Nocera, Alex Bennetts, Katerina Bryant and Marta Skrabacz.

In March 2017, Elizabeth Harrower retraced the route she took when she drove from Sydney to the first Adelaide Writers’ Week in the 1960s. In homage to this Australian writer, Noted artists Neha Kale, Anthony Nocera, Alex Bennetts, Katerina Bryant and Marta Skrabacz are sharing their road trip saga: in audio, visual or written crafts, they’ll share their literal and literary journey to Canberra, taking pleasure (or discomfort) in the act of travel and what they anticipate at Noted in 2017.

Where and how? This content will be available on Noted website on May 5th.

Fear: A Labyrinth

Artist: Linda Chen

What is it that scares us today? The fantastical? The speculative? The seemingly benign? Often the structures that define what we find terrifying arise from dialogues between the innate, the external and the imaginative - less 'things' than entire frames of mind. Exploring the relationship between the innate, the external and the imagined, Linda Chen guides Noted Festival audiences through a virtual haunted house constructed by our writers and their fears. Navigate the labyrinth of our psyche by contributing your own piece.

Hey Rhys

Artists: Tegan Elizabeth Webb

Hey Rhys is an online story project that combines words, music and visual art. It starts with a single scrap of communication between two separated humans. The communication is caught by a young alien girl who lives with her family on a distant planet. The girl translates their words into digital music, to make sure all those who are looking for them understand that they are in love. Hey Rhys might be a grand metaphor for how young people communicate on the internet. It might be abstract interstellar fan fiction. It might be a love story.

Memories in Space & Place

Artists: Claire Rosslyn Wilson

What makes a certain place and object unique? According to Claude Levi-Strauss, material things are goods to think with, a way to reflect on our past and come up with new ideas. Through associational, lateral and unexpected angles, we track and share stories of “things” on the streets of Canberra from diverse perspectives. This event explores our relationship with objects and how they connect us to the world around us. Join the conversation, facilitated by Claire Rosslyn Wilson, and draw out how writers conceive their creative process and the influence of place in creative writing.
