520 1  Canberra's dual status as national capital and local city 
       dramatically affected the rise of a unique contemporary 
       arts scene. This complex story, informed by rich archival 
       material and interviews, details the triumph of local arts
       practice and community over the insistent cultural nation-
       building of Australia's capital. It exposes local arts as 
       a vital force in Canberra's development and uncovers the 
       influence of women in the growth of its visual arts 
       culture. A broad illumination of the city-wide development
       of arts and culture from the 1920s to 2001 is combined 
       with the story of Bitumen River Gallery and its successor 
       Canberra Contemporary Art Space from 1978 to 2001. This 
       history traces the growth of the arts from a community-led
       endeavour, through a period of responses to social and 
       cultural needs, and ultimately to a humanising local 
       practice that transcended national and international
