    The Stand Up Against Poverty campaign is a global solidarity anti poverty action which is coordinated in Australia by Make Poverty History. The action which last year saw 117 Million participants worldwide is being held again this October.

    We are working to ensure the stunt is covered by both local & global media as part of the global campaign & that is also picked up online in a viral capacity by anti poverty campaigners & supporters worldwide. We will also be screening the stunt live on the giant screen at Federation Square as it happens!

    Anna from Anna’s Go-Go Academy is teaching classes for the simple yet amazingly fun routine leading up to the event, so please register for one of these short one hour sessions & come learn the moves so you can stand up & dance with us!

    PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK
    Thanks to Lynda and the interventionists.
    The interventions are subtle beautiful experiences.
    Everyday poetry constructed with care, intelligence and generosity. Participation is a sensory awakening and genuinely does change your perception of the city, and delight in art.
    These interventions are gentle reminder that art can be a gift, that questioning can be subtle and authentic and that we (the audience) don’t need to be confronted to extend our understanding.
    The work is informed by the practice of experienced artists, yet, each installation feels like an experiment. You sense artist’s listening and looking in order to engage with the ever changing context of the city as well as finding ways to share their personal perception and experience with the audience as a collaboration. The experience of participation significantly magnifies the experience of observation.
    The interventionist guides bring another layer of meaning and generosity to the project. Through the ziens artists share the eccentricities of their personal practices encouraging participation. They activate the idea that that there could be a reply to these interventions from an uncurated participant and that the dialogue may continue to grow.
