EDGE PROJECTS is an arts initiative by the Bruny Island based company, Social Justice Communications (SJC), in collaboration with leading mainland Tasmanian and Bruny Island artists, based in the southern regions of Australia. "Edge" is about working in the peripheries, both in a literal and abstract sense: the remote south, coastal edges, cutting edge practice. It is about how the seemingly infinite space of Bruny Island and southern Tasmania is understood through an artist's eye. Edge is also about breaking new ground; moving beyond the thresholds of conventional space or place; testing the limits of materiality. Caroline Rannersberger, a Bruny based artist, and Co-Director of SJC, is the curator of the project and is working closely with the artists to present events of national and international standing.
