Tell us what you really think....

We have had an amazing amount of positive publicity and verbal feedback about the project and the Street Art in particular.

We need to capture this in a structured way so we can learn what you enjoyed the most, where you think we can improve, and listen to any ideas that you might have for future projects.

We have developed a quick 10 question survey that should take you about 5 minutes.

We appreciate your opinion, time and support of the project.

Oh No, The end of the street art?

Well, all great things must end, and so it is that this week the street art will disappear from the streets of Deniliquin.
Get in quick if you want to take any last minute photos or get a good look at any of the series that you have not seen up close and personal.

PS- Volunteers to assist this Friday are greatly welcomed...Email us to let us know if you are interested

So what next?

Here at project headquarters, Kate and I have been discussing various aspects of the project that particularly excite and inspire us to keep creating great photos, but also maintain the contacts that we have developed during this project:

Here are just a few ideas that we are keen to explore and are now 'putting it out there' to see who is interested....

Please email or FB us let us know what you are interested in.

Option A)
Forming a photography collective....No, its not another community group that needs to take minutes. We do that enough in our day jobs.... We are keen to gather a collection of lateral minded, creative photographers where we exchange ideas, showcase our work (brag), or share work of other photographers that excites us. Wine drinking and eating good food is optional but preferred. We are thinking meeting 3 to 4 times per year and it would be very casual, 2 or three hours on a Sunday arvo?

Option B)
More photography workshops. Nick is keen to run some more from his studio- small participant numbers and focused on one aspect of digital photography, and ABC Open are keen to run a workshop that is focused on combining audio and still images.
We are happy to coordinate bookings via the gmail email group.

Option C)
Photography exhibitions.
I have personally been reminded why I love photography so much, and has re-kindled my interest of night photography and industrial photography in particular.
Whilst this might not float every ones boat, there would be no reason why we could not work in small interest clusters to do an exhibition (hard copy or digital) to hang something together.
What about something like digital projections from the inside of of an empty shop over summer? There are lots of interesting ways to exhibit images that are not just pictures on a wall...

Option C)
More Street Art- Bigger, single image, edgy images that say something about where we live and why.... I'd love to make a national comment on how the national water policy will affect our community and region for instance....

Option D)
Digital projections onto the silos or somewhere else equally large and prominent- particularly over summer...

Option E)
Exploring opportunities with iphone/ipod cameras apps. In particular i have become a bit obsessed with Hipstamatic lately. I think an online Hipstamatic group could be quite cool.- You can now contribute to shared albums via hipstamatic/faceboook direct from the app.

Option F)
Finding more exhibition opportunities for the 'Day in the Life' body of work.
Albury City has a digital image gallery space, and there is also a possibility that we may do a re-mount at the Peppin during August this year because the exhibition has been so popular....

That's just a few ideas off the top of our head....

We'd love to hear if you are keen and have any other ideas.....

A Day in the Life- Official Launch

A huge crowd of 150 odd people turned up to launch the Day in the Life Project at the Peppin on Friday night. Opened by Lani Houston; Director of Regional Arts NSW,Chairperson of South West Arts and Executive Officer at RDA Riverina, the exhibition was very warmly received by the Deniliquin community.
Many thanks for Mark Logan and James Giddey who travelled from Orange and Wentworth respectively to attend the opening; both who were pivotal in undertaking the event in 1990 nad 2001.
Check out the pics and FB for further details.
Packed house at the Peppin!
