MCA Director Liz Ann MacGregor Supports the City of Plenty

CITY OF PLENTY

In Sydney, a city of plenty, too many people go without. Too many people sleep rough, too many people do not have enough to eat.
For three weeks in March, artist in residence, Sarah Goffman will use donated non-perishable food, clean waste packaging and house-hold consumables to construct City of Plenty – an installation which will follow the shape and dynamism of the urban environment.

City of Plenty seeks to explore wealth, excess and generosity – all through our relationship to food – its production, distribution, consumption and waste. The size and speed at which the city develops, will also explore our capacity as a people and a nation to give, to share, to be generous.

 

At the conclusion of the project, the city will be dismantled and the food distributed to those in need through our project partners, Oz Harvest and Penrith Community Kitchen.

Come, contribute, be part of something bigger than yourself – be part of the growing City of Plenty.
