Creative conversations

This monthly series invites you to discover captivating stories within the visual arts realm and connect with our local creative community.

Led by art educator, Adrian Montana, each session begins with an informal gathering over a cup of tea or coffee, fostering connections among participants with a shared interest in art and culture. Whether you’re a seasoned art lover or just starting your journey, this is an inclusive space for everyone.

Adrian guides attendees on a deep dive into the world of Australian and international artists, architects, or designers, offering insightful analyses of their unique styles, iconic works, and the societal and political themes that inspired them. This exploration provides a profound understanding of the works and the cultural context that shaped it.

Opportunities for community participation are at the heart of this program and after the presentation, the floor opens for questions and discussions. Adrian invites participants to express their thoughts and ideas in response to the presentation or share recent exhibitions they have seen.

Join us at Incinerator Art Club and be inspired by the themes presented that uncover great stories, and exchange ideas.
