Common Knowledge with The Wandering Room
Common Knowledge is a project that examines artists’ and creative workers’ collective, participatory, and community-based activities to make visible (and audible) the forms of social, cultural, and economic value they create.
Led by one of our artist-researchers-in-residence Channon Goodwin, an artist, arts worker and RMIT PhD candidate based in Naarm/Melbourne, Common Knowledge maps creative practice throughout the Merri-bek City Council area through audio recordings.
Channon spoke with the current Directors of The Wandering Room, David Creed and Angela Rossitto, about the artist-run initiative, which has been operating since 2007, with members collaborating as artists and curating exhibitions in temporary spaces. They are currently situated on the corner of Victoria and Elizabeth Streets in our local neighbourhood of Brunswick.
