Get Out!, Arts Access Victoria’s disability arts ensemble, will rove the streets of Frankston in August performing The Butterfly Surgeons as part of the Frankston Anywhere Festival.
After two years of community workshops, in which hundreds of portraits have been completed, Arts Access Victoria is happy to announce that the MY PLACE exhibition will open soon!
Generously supported by Gandel Philanthropy, Arts Access Victoria has taken MY PLACE to 13 residencies across Victoria from Horsham to Wonthaggi. Hundreds of portraits have been produced, generating a map of Victorian people as they see themselves in their own location.
Due to the vast numbers of portraits produced we are unable to display all the works but have endeavoured to show as many as possible.
Please not that although the opening event will have an accessible toilet, the nearest accessible toilet for the duration of the exhibition Is at the DFO South Wharf shopping complex.
When: Opening at 11am on 17 July, running until 29 July 2015.
Venue: 100th Gallery
Location: 200 Normanby Road South Melbourne
