Time to Listen:

Amplifying Voices from the Royal Commission into Aged Care through Art & Design

As part of the ‘Design for Change: Designing the world we want’ conference (11th-15th July 2022), we showcased the preliminary findings and progression of this ARC Discovery Project as part of an exhibition titled ‘Time to Listen’.

About the Exhibition:

In addition to presenting the initial findings from interviews with key stakeholders, and a large-scale media analysis of news coverage of the RC, Time to Listen demonstrates an early exploration of alternative arts-based methods of engaging with aged care stories, including art installations, research poetry, and digital interactive experiences.

As part of this exhibition, the Sphere was host to the first appearence of a new artwork by Jen Seevinck, titled ‘Not/Be Heard’ – an installation which visualises words of a witness from the RC, alongside exploratory sketches with found and concrete poetry, and experimental image generation using machine learning.

Attendees were also invited to participate in a Found Poetry Workshop creating found poetry with submissions to the Royal Commission combining collage and other visual poetry methods. Throughout the exhibition space were several mailboxes where people could ‘post’ a handwritten response to someone’s story contained in unmarked envelopes.
