Hello.  My name is Ilona Nelson and I'm a Melbourne based artist.  This is my long term project called This Wild Song (TWS) which I created to celebrate women artists!  There are so many amazing artists practicing in Australia and I want to support them by showcasing their work, providing networking opportunities with other artists (therefore strengthening the arts community) and addressing gender equality in the arts in a positive way.

What is This Wild Song?
TWS celebrates Australian visual artists with a unique voice through portraits, interviews, exhibitions and events.
/ PORTRAITS
The photographic portraits are all unique with a specific concept created for each artist.  The theme of the portraits is for the artist to become a part of their work, but also to create an honest and true depiction of who they are as a person.  Significance is placed on how the location, costume, props and composition relate to the artist and their practice.
/ INTERVIEWS
The portraits and an accompanying interview are featured on www.thiswildsong.com.au
Subscribe to the TWS podcast and listen to honest conversations with artists about the practicalities and realities of being an artist.
/ EXHIBITIONS
We regularly exhibit the portraits with works by the sitters, and our next major show is:
TWS X THG Opens 1st September 2-4pm and runs until 21st October at Town Hall Gallery.
/ EVENTS
There is a program of events scheduled to coincide with the exhibition at THG, see our website for details!

How does Patreon work?
By becoming a patron of This Wild Song (for a monthly amount of your choosing) your contribution helps us create the portraits, pay all of the women involved for their time, and produce the podcast.  All of which helps create a free educational resource and online documentation of contemporary art in Australia.

Thank you so much for your support!

Goals
5% complete
There are many costs involved in a project this large and my goal is to raise $1000 a month to cover the costs of making 2 podcast episodes.

This includes:
  • Paying the interviewee for their time
  • Editing by Alana Helbig
  • Monthly hosting costs
Please note that TWS is a not for profit project and all funds raised are used to cover costs and pay artists for their time.

This Wild Song seeks to change the landscape by addressing gender inequality in the arts and highlighting the importance of valuing and respecting artists.  Working for free with a promise of exposure only leads to more of the same, let's break the cycle!
