The Disquietude Trophy Project

What are your unacknowledged achievements – things taking lots of time or effort, but that only you notice? For many people, the most important accomplishments in life are stuff done each day “just” to keep everything together. Over the past four months in Mildura Kate Cotching has been running short workshops where people took on the challenge of reflecting on their lives to identify strengths, and imagining what a trophy for these might look like – and then they made it.

An installation of the sculptures produced were exhibited at Mildura Arts Centre
