Paste-up photography – we’re in editing stage yay!!!

Seven sessions and wow – just have a look! Fun portraits aren’t they! Our group is also growing – we now have Afghani, Australian, Togolese, Chinese, Japanese and Polish participants – we are a very creative multinational, multilingual and multicultural group. Anyone can join us regardless of age, language or culture – this is a community engagement project for everyone in Ballarat.

We R YouĀ is modelled onĀ the globalĀ Inside OutĀ initiative, which isĀ providing a ā€˜faceā€™ for marginalised andĀ disadvantaged people in communitiesĀ around the world.Ā Ā If you havenā€™t heard ofĀ Inside Out ProjectĀ – please read how much impact it has on engaging communities and building positive connections.

Conceived as a graffiti interventionĀ initiative, Ballaratā€™sĀ We R YouĀ projectĀ will create large (A0 x 2 or A0 x 4) sized, digitalĀ photographic portraits of diverseĀ people who are otherwise ā€˜invisibleā€™Ā in our community. These portraits will beĀ printed on paper and then pasted inĀ identified graffiti hot-spots around Ballarat.

Next activity today at 4pm – Ā meeting outside the Huyghue House (behind the Art Gallery on Lydiard St) and we’ll be editing images at BLX lab on Camp Street – learning how to use Photoshop etc etc so don’t miss this one!

We’ll also be choosing the best ones to go on the display.Ā See you all later today!…
