For the Post-War Project, Katy is researching the Australian Soldier Settlement Scheme post-First World War and using this research to inspire new works. The year-long project will culminate in an exhibition in Mildura in 2016. Mildura has a strong tie to the Soldier Settlement Scheme through the close-by Red Cliffs district.

It was fascinating to discover that a lot of the objects I included and themes I developed in my poem also appeared in Katy's works: spades, rifles, watercourses, metal, the colour of the soil, separation and loss.
I am looking forward to continuing to work on this project and I hope to be able to contribute to Katy's exhibition in 2016.
Seriously, though, you should check out Katy Mutton's work.
