2014 4 Channel Video Installation
Portraits offered young people from 6-22 years of age, with and without disability, to engage in artistically rich and imaginative portrait-making processes with Rawcus Ensemble and guest artists Sarah Walker, Hermione Merry, The Sisters Hayes and Michael O’Dwyer.
Each artist and space offering its own unique experience and aesthetic resulted in a collection of photographic works, posters and projections coming together to form an exhibition celebrating International Day of People with Disability in December 2014 at Gasworks Arts Park.
Portraits was supported by the Cassandra Gantner Foundation, City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund and Shulu Foundation.
Rawcus receives operational funding from Arts Victoria and support from City of Port Phillip and Scope Victoria.
