Artist in Residence: Jess Coldrey

We are thrilled to announce that Jess Coldrey will be an Artist in Residence at Bendigo Tech School in February and March 2024.

Jess is currently developing an exciting five-week program where she will be exploring the captivating intersection of technology, textiles, and women's empowerment. The ultimate goal is to collaborate with local schools, industry, and the Bendigo community to create an exhibition focused on social activism, sustainability, and the influence of technology on our lives.

Get ready for an incredible showcase featuring breathtaking AI-generated fashion and creative science fiction landscapes, all with a futuristic sustainability twist. Drawing inspiration from Bendigo's rich textile history, Jess will work closely with young people to co-develop projects fusing AI-assisted designs, virtual worlds, and stunning photography. 

We are seeking expressions of interest from students in Years 9 to 12 to form part of the leadership and planning group later this year. Please email [email protected] if your students would like to be involved.
