Art Project Aims to Capture Liddell Legacy

Artists often have a different perspective on every-day things in life, and that is exactly what Arts Upper Hunter are looking for in the Liddell WORKS project.

Expressions of interest are currently being taken for creatives with ideas about how the history, and closure, of Liddell Power Station can be captured for future generations.

Arts Upper Hunter executive director John O’Brien explained that the power station has been important and impactful on the region, and thus it’s closure will be as well.

“The core of the program is a series of artists residencies which might be sketching or recording or whatever on site and then you turn that into art for an exhibition next year,” he said.

Consultation with the First Nations community is underway, and current and past employees are also strongly encouraged to come forward with their creative ideas to record living history in the Hunter.

There are Liddell Power Station tours available in coming weeks for artists looking to submit an EOI.  For more information on these or the Liddell WORKS project visit, or contact the team on 0409 382 509.
