The Midland Junction Arts Centre opened its doors to a large number of artists and arts organisations for the CAN networking event on Thursday evening, 7 September. Visitors explored the Vahana and Horse Drawn exhibitions, viewed the works in progress by community members and International artist Kasirajan Subbaiah and met the artists in residence whilst touring the venue. Madjitil Moorna choir began the organisation presentations followed by Poppy van Oorde-Grainger as she discussed the Protection film project. Sarah Toohey then led the community presentations with an overview of the Horse Tales project before the group moved onto an informal networking session. It was terrific to see so many new artists from all disciplines sharing their stories thanks to CAN and becoming acquainted with the Midland Junction Arts Centre.
