Artist Statement + CV

Artist Statement

Indie McCue is a creative practitioner, facilitator and organiser looking at participatory work as a wider focus. He is under the firm impression that in order to affect social change and sustain creativity you must include everyone in the planning, conversation and physical outputs, whatever they may be.

Indie’s existence as well as practice aims to create continuous conversation and action about community, playfulness and the importance of each individual’s role in the rebuilding of creative idealisations.
