GARMENT EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST: PHOTOGRAPHER

The City of Albany Arts and Culture team have been successful in receiving funding from the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries to present gARmenT at the Albany Town Hall in August / September 2022.

 gARmenT is a wearable art project aimed at bringing a diverse range of ages, cultures and makers together to build a creative community event, foster new community connections and grow the audience of the Albany Town Hall. This will involve local artists facilitating workshops with school groups, TAFE students and local community groups including Albany Pride and an Indigenous women’s group to contribute to the production of approximately 40 wearable art pieces.

 gARmenT will be celebrated with a ticketed Gala Fashion Show and family friendly Matinee Show at the Albany Town Hall. The works will then be exhibited in the Town Hall for two weeks to showcase the project to the community as a whole.

 The City of Albany’s Arts and Culture Team are currently seeking expressions of interest from photographers who are keen to become the official photographer for this project. In addition to photographing the gARmenT events on 27 and 28 August 2022, the photographer will be required to photograph the dress rehearsal on 26 August, artists working in their studios and/or as they mentor community groups during the development stages of the project, and the finished wearable art pieces on display at the post-event exhibition.
