Susie Elliott is an artist, curator and researcher. She co-runs Wide Open Road Art, a public art space in Castlemaine that was set up as an extension of collaborative and independent practice exploring themes around the notion of an art centre, the building/deconstruction of connections (to peoples, materials, histories, geographies, processes, and so on) and the relationship between old and new crafts/technologies. Susie’s solo work and recent academic research have explored issues around making, the domestic and revived informal social spaces. She has recently received grants for work for the Regional Centre for Culture, Mt Alexander Shire, Creative Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria and Castlemaine State Festival.
