Sarah Newall’s Sustainability Project
For just over a year Sarah Newall has undertaken an artist residency in the small concrete yard behind Airspace Project.

Over the course of the weekend Newall will be present for 48 hours living and working sustainably on site.

Location: AirSpace Projects, 10 Junction St, Marrickville, 2204
Join Emily Copp at AirSpace Projects on Friday the 11th of March 2016 for a night of awareness raising documentaries around the subject of unconventional gas mining.
Australia has seen rapid expansion of coal and coal seam gas development over the last 5 years, despite widespread and vocal community opposition. Come along to find out more about the issues at hand as well as listen to guest speakers and engage in conversation around this important topic.
This event is a fundraiser for Lock the Gate Alliance, a national grassroots organisation made up of over 40,000 supporters and more than 250 local groups, who are concerned about unsafe coal and gas mining. These groups are located in all parts of Australia and include farmers, traditional custodians, conservationists and urban residents.
Hosted by AirSpace Projects and Emily Copp in conjunction with her exhibition, As Below, So Above, a collection of works made in response to her concerns around coal seam gas mining.
Sunday 20 March 11-5pm
The Artists Are Present
From 11-5 the exhibiting artists will be present to informally discuss their work and answer your questions. It’s a great day to hang out at AirSpace Projects! Feel free to bring along a picnic and supplement it with pickings from Sarah Newall’s garden in Outer Space.
