Macquarie Park Optus Campus, Optus, 'Knit the Campus' Yarn Bombing
KNIT THE CAMPUS
What: Art Pharmacy Consultancy collaboration with Optus – an ambitious project to yarn-bomb the Optus Macquarie Park campus! Optus has redefined the traditional corporate art relationship with the installation of a large-scale ‘Yarnbombing’ in collaboration with Redfern based fibre-artist, and creative consulting firm Art Pharmacy.
As part of the ongoing Optus Employee Experience programs, which offer the Optus community a broad range of activities on campuses across the country, the collaboration with Art Pharmacy was designed specifically to engage employees in every step of the project. The installation, across the Optus Sydney campus in Macquarie Park, is the first corporate project that Art Pharmacy Consulting has undertaken in collaboration with both a visiting artist, and the employees of the company.
Where: Optus Macquarie Park
“At Optus we have a broad range of activities that are available to our people, and it is so important to have a creative element on offer – but with this project we were able to introduce an experienced artist to help bring the project to life, and there was always a strong engagement from employees because they were creating the art alongside Jane
During the workshops it was great to see people from different departments interacting with each other and strengthening the community within the organisation, Optus is such a large and diverse group of people and for them to have an opportunity to meet each other and work collaboratively is really positive."
