Bec became the Lead Artist for Creative Challenge, a regional
residency program that culminates in an exhibition showcasing
work of children from around Western Australia. The exhibition
is a small part of Awesome Festival, an international children’s
festival, held in Perth in October.
Bec’s theme was called This Little Light, encouraging children
to explore light through many art forms and mediums. Bec travelled
to two residencies out of twelve, Gascoyne Junction and Kalgoorlie.
Gathering photo documentation from all twelve residencies, Bec
decided on a common theme of travel and the idea of suitcase
lanterns was born. Six large scale suitcases were created, each side
representing one of the communities that artists from Creative Challenge
live and work in for two weeks between May and September.
