If you’re in a photography group or club, we’d love to talk to you about Art for Everyone.
Art for Everyone is a community arts project centred around photography. From 1 October to 31 December, you can submit your photos as part of this project. You do this by posting images to your Instagram account, using the project hashtag (which we’ll announce on 30 September).
We’ll be selecting 300-400 images for an exhibition at the Kyabram Town Hall. And we’d love to have a special section for your club. To identify your group’s photos, we’d need you to post an extra hashtag to your images.
We’re thrilled to announce our platinum sponsor, Kyabram Club.
The Club’s Board of Directors have gotten behind our project concept to the tune of a whopping $5000!
This allows us to buy the portable display boards we need to display unframed photographs for the exhibition phase of the project. The display boards are the major item of expenditure for the project. So without this generous contribution, the project would not have been possible.
If you’d like to join us for the presentation of the cheque, come along to the Club on Friday May 26, 2017 at 6:30pm.
You’ll be able to help us say thanks to the Club’s directors, and find out more about our exciting community arts project.
