Richie Cyngler, Sabrina Evans, Troy Melville and Sara Wright

A multi platform partnership project between Contemporary Art Tasmania, Youth Arc and artist Sara Wright was aimed at creating extraordinary opportunities for young artists aged from 16 – 24. With a focus on screen culture, video production and open source technology, the intention was to investigate, dismantle and expose perceptions of identity, through various modes of creative process.

Participants of the Dismantle program gained access to a unique suite of exhibitions, festival programs and workshops in public and private art institutions led by associated artists and arts professionals.
