To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,

And Eternity in an hour.

the snap shot community project
More than seventy people share the lines of their story with the aid of a disposable camera
The Story Lines photography project is intended to involve non-artists as well as artists in active participation and representation in an exhibition context. The aim is to get people involved in the arts who would not normally enter a gallery let alone have there own work hung in an exhibition. We hope that this active participation with the non-arts community will help to educate and break down the barriers between the arts and the broader community.
The intention is to have an exhibition of photography that will include people from all walks of life. Brunswick Arts has provided a pack that includes a disposable camera, developing and hanging of the exhibition to over seventy people from all over Melbourne. Participants were asked to document their life in any way that they see fit knowing that all shots are exhibited with no censorship. Each roll of film will be developed in one long strip that will be hung in the gallery, in ether vertical or horizontal positions.
Brunswickarts gave twenty of the seventy cameras out to four community groups in the Moreland area. These included Ceres environmental art park, the Sydney rd community school and the Asylum Seekers Welcome Centre. As part of the galleries commitment to supporting it’s local community to interact and become part of the art’s community.
The project will culminate in an opening night in which the participants in the show will be able to celebrate their exhibition.

‘Interiors’ is a group exhibition that asked artists to consider the theme interiors. Fourteen artists from different artistic backgrounds and disciplines have contributed works on their personal interpretations of interiors. Given instructions that they were to consider the theme broadly, they have found inspiration from a range of different sources.
They have drawn stimulus from sources such as interior decoration and design, to more literal translations of space and form; from representations of one’s interior life, to visceral and metaphysical spaces.
Works chosen for the show cover a range of mediums and materials. They include small vessel like sculptures, to digital images that reference wallpaper. Installation pieces that explore our relationships to public and private space, to skin containers that reference the paradox of containment and freedom; and architectural models of office buildings that give glimpse into the interior life of urban existence.
‘Interiors’ aims to give an eclectic mix of artists the chance to explore the concept of what it's like to be on the inside.
