Urban Culture Project
An interview project run by Nadia Cusimano throughout 2012
What is culture to young people? This is the underlying question driving the Urban Culture Interview Project together with the desire to listen and not assume what young people might think. To listen to what inspires youth. To hear about what kind of activities they would like to be doing and what they want to see happening in the area where they live. To ask youth what they would like us to be doing. Generating an art project within the youth community that is about asking the simplest question of a people and place to - what is culture to you?

A graffiti art project run by Seb Humphreys throughout 2012
Participants will engage in aerosol art projects on various walls throughout the City of Onkaparinga. The project will include mentoring in aerosol art and community engagements with local businesses and community organisations.
Now 26, Seb Humphreys grew up in Prospect during the early nineties. It was his daily trip through KAB 101’s Alleyway (Honeysuckle Lane) to and from primary school that he got his first touches with Adelaide’s burgeoning legal aerosol art scene.
The influence stuck and the love of design and the nuances of letterform and typographical construction became the source of his artistic output from then on. Moving from Prospect in 1999 and relocating to the Adelaide hills for the next 7 years, Seb infused his love of design with the appreciation of natural forms and developed his trademark ‘organic style’. This recent greenman work can be seen on King William Street, the pillars underneath the Morphett Street bridge and other spots in and around various cities nationally and internationally.
Practicing professionally since 2008, Seb works across the community arts, studio and mural artwork platforms, keeping in touch with the grass roots of the legal aerosol art scene through teaching aerosol workshops and pushing the limits of the artform with large scale mural projects. Seb has worked with Carclew’s Visual Arts and Digital Media Program, Arts and Education Program and was a mentee in JUMP National Mentoring Program for Young and Emerging Artists during 2010.
