Local Sites

LOCAL SITES by Margie Medlin explores a series of contentious and undefined spaces in the SW corner of the City of Adelaide. In consultation with her neighbours and other local residents, Margie asks questions about how these spaces of indeterminacy can become sites for actions and events.

This project is part of the OSCA’s ongoing commissioning program Projects of the Everyday that seeds, develops and presents artist-led projects in in innovative spaces of creativity, making and experimentation. Through a model responsive to  local ideas and situations, Projects of the Everyday offers South Australian artists long-term support to research, create and present participatory projects in the suburb where they live. The diverse project outcomes highlight OSCA’s interest to develop new forms of artistic engagement and participation in the public domain.

Artists Involved


Our mission is to provide artists and non-artists with opportunities to create contemporary works that explore local ideas and new way of coming together in the public domain.

OSCA acknowledges we work on Kaurna Land – always was, always will be.

OSCA is funded by Arts South Australia. We also receive project support from the Australia Council, the City of Port Adelaide Enfield, Country Arts SA and the City of Onkaparinga.
