Just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD and spread over 16 acres, the Abbotsford Convent – with its 11 historic buildings and gardens – is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. The former Convent of the Good Shepherd, this ex-monastic site is now owned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) – a not-for-profit organisation that operates the Abbotsford Convent on behalf of the public.
Today, the Convent is home to over 100 studios, two galleries, cafes, a radio station, a school, and an abundance of green open space. Each year the Convent welcomes a diverse range of art projects, rehearsals, workshops, exhibitions, markets, events and festivals.
In this workshop participants will have the opportunity for a multi sensorial encounter- with theory, with practice, with the outdoors, with materials and with each other.
Working alongside Filippo Chieli , atelierista and Paola Strozzi, pedagogista and the provocative environment of The Abbotsford Convent-a National Heritage listed site participants will experience the culture of the atelier.
