Creative Occupation

Creative Occupation is an artist collective, exploring creative connections on Wadawurrung Country/ Geelong in places seen and ‘unseen’. Established in 2018 inspired by a project on South Channel Fort Island, in Port Phillip Bay, our practice is underpinned by links with coastal and (under)water locations around the bay and beyond.  We work in performance, visual art, poetry, film, sculpture, curating, field recordings; weaving the interactions of these fields together. Creative Occupation is an ecology of practice, emerging through organic flows and connections of ideas, concepts, creative processes, experiences, journeys, environments, and collaborations. The enactments of Creative Occupation manifest through events and communing through art, ritual, and creative play

Wyld Work Projects

We run an Artist Run Gallery space and pre-accredited art courses in North Geelong. At Wyld Work Projects we utilise the benefits of a creative, nature-based approach and Asset Based Community development principals in our work with partner agencies. The aim is to undertake grassroots projects that reduce social isolation and build active citizenship. An active and engaged community sees reduced welfare dependency, reduced crime rates and reduced unemployment. This, combined with improved health and wellbeing outcomes and vocational success, is what we strive for.

In a self-confessed Post-Covid-Funk, Rachel hooked up with Creative Geelong and hasn't looked back. Bringing works together as Vintage Remixed for window installations for the first time, Rachel gained the confidence to take the plunge and became a tenant at Centrepoint through 2022-2023.  In that time she experimented with new inspirations, collaborated with other local artists, and became an enthusiastic advocate for the space. Joining as a member and now board member in 2024, Rachel is continuing pursuing her passion for storytelling and visual communication with many new projects while supporting Creative Geelong's website, insta socials and videos for artists featured in The Third Space Gallery + Digital.

A multidisciplinary artist using paints, fabrics and all manner of salvaged and worked materials to create traditional canvas pieces and 3D sculpture. A master of window installations with an established career producing displays for icons like Myer Melbourne and a long stint at the Nicholas Building - you're likely to have already seen Andrew's displays for CG around Centrepoint. His recent exhibition in Darwin, Reimagined  in The Thirdspace Gallery+digital pushed the boundaries of perception for passers by as they realised with delight that what appeared to be a collection of specimens were actually faithfully created by Andrew's hand.

Effie Williams

Effie aims to brighten up the every day by making art functional by creating paintings on fabrics that can be worn or used around the home, such as aprons, tea towels and tote bags. Using screen printing ink to paint and stamp onto fabric, the heat set process will allow the pieces to be machine washable and long lasting. Combining bright colour combinations with playful imagery, Effie's designs enhance the sensory nature of the hand painted fabrics. Expect to see lots of flowers, animals, fruit, vegetables, people and everyday things such as taps or umbrellas!
