Mick Douglas makes socially-engaged art projects in the public domain, and is senior lecturer in the School of Architecture & Design at RMIT University. His recent work explores inter-relationships between aesthetic experiences of mobility, cultural change practices and performative encounters – a field he describes as ‘Cultural Transports’. His projects involve him working across mediums, disciplines and interest groups to develop artforms engaging with movement, hospitality and cosmopolitanism. Recent projects that employ a mode of transport as a medium of arts practice including ‘W-11 Tram’ first commissioned by the cultural festival of the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games, and ‘tramjatra: imagining Melbourne and Kolkata by tramways’ (also a book: Yoda Press, Delhi and RMIT Press, Melbourne, 2005) <www.tramtactic.net >; ‘Ride-On-Dinner’ – a mobile performance event <www.ride-on-dinner.net>; and ‘LiveHouse’ – an arts platform for improvised performances of Housing Estate residents in inner-city Melbourne.
