BIG PICTURE

April 4, 2012

Are you interested in photography and digital storytelling?

Want to hangout with professional photographers and get access to hi-tec digital labs?

Flashpoint Labs in partnership with the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence(NCIE),  Powerhouse Museum, Vibewire, and Future Journeys is running a changemaking photography and digital storytelling program for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders (16-24) in inner-city Sydney over the Easter holiday period (April 13th-29th).

The BIG PICTURE program focuses on creating an opportunity for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to learn and practice photography, storytelling and multimedia production. It’s also about having a chance to hangout with professional photographers, having a bit of hands on creative fun, and getting to access to the Powerhouse Museum’s Hi-Tec Labs. If the participants want, we’ll also have exhibitions in galleries and spaces around Sydney.

There will be an introductory afternoon session on Friday 13th April, then six full-day workshops, four at the NCIE on 16th, 17th, 18th, 20th  April and two on the weekend of the 28th-29th April, at the Powerhouse’s Thinkspace labs. More details here.
