In March 2014 I was commissioned as a community artist by DADAA (arts organisation working with disabled and disadvantaged) for the FIVE project (www.five.org.au). In collaboration with the Geraldton Streetwork Aboriginal Corporation (an organisation that brings about cultural awareness to young people) I designed and facilitated a photography workshop series with young people, aged 14-16 years. The workshops explored Aboriginal peoples connection to land, a cultural facet which resonated with the young people. The series culminated in an outdoor exhibition of young people’s work curated by myself. The opportunity for the young people to exhibit their own work was both empowering and significant in building their confidence.
The work produced during the workshops can be viewed here
