Creative Histories is a project of Queensland artist Judy Barrass. It seeks to connect artists with heritage, museums and collections in a partnership that creates fresh ways of interpreting, commenting on or presenting history.
This blog will be used as a resource base to document various projects and investigate what happens when artists focus their attention on collections, museums and historical places. It is also intended as a resource for artists and for museums who may be interested in the processes of working with artists to renew or invigorate the interface between history and the general community.
The project has grown out of a long term interest in and connection with historical places and collections and several major projects in Queensland, including The Ipswich House and Collective Insites.
