We’re excited to announce we’re collaborating with Yandell Walton to mentor up to six students to support them to learn and deliver projection art.
15-21 year old students who live, study or visit the City of Greater Dandenong can apply to be selected. You don’t need to have an existing art practice or experience to apply, just a strong interest and an artistic eye.
Selected participants will connect each week to discuss ideas, challenges, ways of creating on a digital platform and receive professional advice.
Content will be developed individually using different techniques and digital applications. At the conclusion of the six weeks, it will be uploaded and developed into a major projection work displayed on the Drum Theatre.
Applications are open now and close 6 July 2020.
