As part of the recent Unlimited: Designing for Asia Pacific Triennial, 75 leading Creative Industries thinkers came together with representatives from the public and private sectors for an intimate evening of dinner and conversation in Urban Art Projects’ workshop. The event provided an environment in which a unique and diverse group could gather on creative ground to discuss design-led thinking and collaboration across sectors.

Famously a place where skilled craftsmen cast unique artworks, UAP’s workshop was an unconventional and exciting setting for a three-course meal. UAP has grown to be a place where collaborations of all kinds yield art and design solutions in evolving and inventive materiality. To capture this in the spirit of Unlimited, we asked emerging practitioner Kyle McLean to work with us to reactivate the foundry and create a theatrical experience that represented the idiosyncratic diversity of the place. Responding to the industrial architecture with nothing but light, McLean’s installation brought the essence of the foundry’s creative life into the space above the single, long dining table.

David Williams of Gilimbaa opened the event with a rousing Acknowledgement of Country and didgeridoo performance. Speakers for the evening were Ewan McEoin, Creative Director of Unlimited, Ben Tait, Urban Art Projects‘ CEO, and Mark Scott, Managing Director of ABC.
