20 October 2010 - 29 October 2010
SNAPHOP A ROTARY YOUTH ARTS PROJECT 2010 LAUNCH
@ Centre for Contemporary Photography, 404 George St. Fitzroy (Not Dancehouse).
This year we celebrate the creative work of young people living, working or schooling in the City of Yarra, who are on the edges... of diverse cultural backgrounds or from alternative education settings, as we launch their 2010 contemporary photography exhibition and dance video clip with live performance.
Do You See What I See - A Photographic Exhibition
& Tuned In - A Fresh Dance Video
Do You See What I See - A Photographic Exhibition.
This exhibition showcases images of 6 young people who have been working with professional photographer Salote Tawale, looking at photohistory, identity and developing their digital photography skills.
Some playful, some stark, Do You See What I See presents young people's images in a professional gallery setting.
Tuned In - A Dance Video
A fresh youth dance video featuring choreography by participants. This collaborative video follows young people's dreams of the immortal dance film where magic lives.
Choreography, direction and video by Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and with an original funky soundtrack by James Mangohig. This video is screened and with a live performance at the SnapHop Launch October 20th 6 - 7:30 @ CCP and will be found on-line.
