Megan Jane Campbell
Creative Connections Resident 2012 was Featherston artist Megan Jane Campbell, who undertook her residency between April and July 2012. Megan’s project during the residency focused on two apsects of her personal connection to the city of Dunedin. The first related to her close family connections to the Caversham area of Dunedin, where her mother grew up in the early 20th century. In 2010, just prior to her mothers death, Megan and her mother undertook a road trip to Dunedin to revisit the places where she grew up. The second aspect of Megan’s project relates to her training as a Psychiatric nurse, and to the historical records and photographs of the old Seacliff Hospital.
In late 2012/early 2013 Megan hopes to be able to host an exhibition of all of the work produced during her residency at the Caselberg cottage.
