4 – 31 MAY – WE R YOU: OUR FACES, OUR COMMUNITY
…Amiee Ryan, project participant from Yuille Park Community College in Wendouree
M.A.D.E is proud to feature ‘We R You’ for the month of May. Funded by the Victorian Department of Justice and supported by the City of Ballarat, ‘We R You’ is engaging people across our community in partnership workshops in creating the super-sized portraits of Ballarat residents.
Printed on plain paper and installed using water-based glue, ‘We R You’ installations are an environmentally benign way for people to ‘own’ otherwise neglected and unsightly neighbourhood spaces. ‘We R You’ is facilitated by award-winning Ballarat photographer Aldona Kmiec, who brilliantly explores the meaning of multi-culturalism. I also feature as one of twenty female speakers in the M.A.D.E BY WOMEN weekend on 11-12 May. Come down and meet me!
