About Us

Centre for Projection Art produces meaningful artistic events, both challenging and beautiful to our audiences.
 
Challenging what is possible we bring people together through their interaction with Projection Art.

Projection art is beautiful.

That’s why we work with both practising and emerging artists, to help them explore, learn and grow, pushing their talents and abilities towards exciting new boundaries.  From staging workshops and mentorship programs, to running artist residencies and more, a big part of the work we do is about helping develop the practice of Projection Art in Australia.

We’re also passionate about sharing what we do with others by producing and consulting on some incredible events that showcase the amazing scope and artistic beauty of Projection as an art-form, including the much loved Gertrude Street Projection Festival. The festival is Australia’s longest-running projection festival we have a reputation for discovering artists, uncovering places, exploring ideas and bringing together locals and visitors by night to experience playful, thoughtful and inspiring new media work.

Our events are a chance to share what we love with the wider community and we celebrate the opportunity to bring people together.

Our wonderful CEO for the past 3.5 years, Bianca is leaving us to start a new professional adventure. We are very sad to see her go, but she has an exceptional new role which we know she will execute with the same success and excellence as her work to build the Centre of Projection Art (CfPA).

During her tenure as CEO, Bianca did an extraordinary job in building the CfPA from the ground up to establish our presence in the arts sector with our artist residencies, masterclasses, continuing to build our flagship project the Gertrude Street Projection Festival as well as a string of other arts projects both inside and outside of Victoria. Her dedication and drive to develop and build the CfPA profile together with her work with artists, local and state governments and the local community provided a new chapter in the growth and appreciation of projection art and other new technology mediums. This work undoubtedly put CfPA on the map as a successful emerging arts organisation in Victoria.

The past 18 months have been incredibly difficult for the arts sector, including the CfPA, but Bianca’s dedication allowed us to pivot across social media to provide a continued avenue for artists to create and show new work. The logistical requirements of this task were completed under incredibly challenging circumstances. Bianca has laid an amazing foundation for the future growth of the CfPA and on behalf of the Board, want to acknowledge and thank Bianca for her wonderful and dedicated work and the amazing legacy for the future success she has built.

Our search for a new CEO is in full swing and we hope to announce a new CEO soon, in the interim, our Board Vice President, Edwina Bartlem is stepping in as interim CEO, and we also thank Edwina for stepping up!
