Grong Grong Creative House
During the 4th - 11th August 2013 The Cad Factory invited six artists to the Grong Grong Motor Inn for an intensive week of making new and original artworks to bring the motel to life with installations and performance for a special one night only event on Saturday 10 August at 6:30pm.
Four local Riverina artists were involved and included: Scott Howie, a theatre maker; Julie Montgarrett, a textiles artist; Her Riot, a musician; and Vic McEwan an installation artist and performance maker. Sydney video artist Darrin Baker and writer Clytie Smith made their way down the Hume Highway to the region as well to participate.
The artists lived and made work in their room as well as collaborating with each other to make work around the grounds. This week long intensive arts laboratory allowed the opportunity for deep exchange, exploration and presentation of ideas.
