'Adelaide Arrive: Air & Rail Entrance to Adelaide' SA and 'Mile end Wall' 1995

'Adelaide Arrive' project pioneered collaboration between artist-designers, government, streetscape architects, transport engineers and traffic engineers on planning and design for the major roadway entrance to the city. Under the direction of artist Margaret Worth, the project supported the first public-place artworks by aboriginal artists in south Australia. The art-design component of the project was to introduce the story of change and development in the area, in a chronological sequence along the road. The sequence includes reference to early wetlands, to the presence of first nations peoples, to farm lands, to commerce, industry and subsequently to urban residential development. The story components are integrated into the bus shelters, pavements and feature works. A sound barrier wall was needed for the Mile End Residential Development by Kinsmen, Project Management for Kinhill . It provided an opportunity to expand the presence of the story-telling to include the layering of the flood-plain land, the site of a first factory, the human cost to the first nations people and the foundry that once made farm machinery that was transported across Australia and places beyond. The project was assisted with funds from the Australia Council, federal, state and local governments.

Artist-Designer Team: Sherreen Rankine Kaurna artist, Leslie Matthews, Sandy Naulty, Martin Corbin, Vaughan Greene, Sasha Stojanovic and Roger Noakes. Margaret Worth as Art Director + Arts Team Co-ordinator collaborated with Land Systems EBC of the Hassel Group for 'Adelaide Arrive' and with Kinsmen on the 'Mile End Wall'.
