Join Artists Peter Gardiner, Damien Linnane and Clare Weeks in conversation with Curator Dr Rod Pattenden as they discuss their work featured in The Lock-Up’s current exhibition LOUD SKY.
Listen as the artists speak about the processes involved in making their works in response to stories of survivors of institutional church-based child sexual abuse uncovered through the hearings of the Australian Child Sexual Abuse Royal Commission.
Developed closely with members of the Clergy Abused Network (CAN), LOUD SKY presents the experiences of survival in the aftermath of trauma through contemporary art; for those immediately affected, family members, and the wider community within the context of the Hunter, a region profoundly impacted by institutional child abuse.
We encourage visitors to come to the in-conversation and exhibition with a friend, family or support person.
