Greater Union interrogates the shared foundation of artist-run initiatives—collaboration. These spaces rely heavily on the energy of a group of people who are actively seeking to contribute to the shape of the arts environment. In Greater Union, the artists explore collaborative art making practices to reimagine the disused Cinema One and bring out its potential for heightening collaborative reflection. Having mentor-based collaboration in its founding ethos places Sister in a meaningful position to consider the significance of collaboration as an organisational, curatorial, and artistic process. Members of the Sister team, together with local and interstate artists, will navigate the role collaboration plays in their varying positions as arts workers and practitioners.
