“Twenty-four hours. Your camera. Our collective memory.”
‘Mosaic: 24 Hours’ is a community project presented by Propel Youth Arts WA in partnership with the City of Perth. The completely free public exhibition— which will be located on Level 2 of Carillon City Shopping Centre in the Perth city centre— is dedicated to providing regular people in WA the opportunity to be an exhibiting artist.
Mosaic is a creatively unique photography project which explores individual memories of Western Australians, while simultaneously forming a shared narrative about ‘a day in WA’. The project will provide photography rookies, students, hobbyists and professionals the chance to display their works side by side at the exhibition.
Propel Youth Arts WA is a major not-for-profit organisation, which is dedicated to creating valuable opportunities for young people to engage in the Arts across the whole of Western Australia. Propel offers a wide range of programs and services across all art forms, including the well-known Sketchbook Project, which exhibits the collective works of artists aged from 12 to 26. The project is displayed in the State Library of Western Australia, as well as other regional and suburban libraries.
The Mosaic exhibition will run from Thursday the 26th of October until Monday the 27th of November. The public will also get the opportunity to vote on their favourite photo, which they will be able to do at the exhibition or online at propel.org.au. The results will be announced on Friday the 24th of November, with the winner receiving a huge prize package, including: $300 worth of vouchers, free memberships, free art prints and more.
