New augmented reality exhibition is launching TODAY

Posted 21 March 2019

“DRAWN TOGETHER”

An exciting new augmented reality exhibition is launching TODAY at the Renew Geelong Concept Space.

The artworks reflect upon the understanding of the refugee experience and our common humanity. Augmented reality art allows viewers to point their smart phone at the artwork, where their screen comes alive combining various elements to tell stories in a unique way.

Over the past six months, two professional artists, Laura Alice and Liz McGrath have mentored youth from culturally diverse backgrounds, engaging them in an immersive visual arts program and empowering them to exhibit and share their personal stories of the refugee experience in the public arena. The project has connected young refugees with these established local artists and their wider networks, and given them an opportunity to use a cutting edge visual art genre to communicate their stories.

Drawn Together is a Bluebird Foundation project made possible through collaborations with The Fort and North Geelong Secondary College. It has been supported by the Victorian Multicultural Commission through its Community Harmony grant program.Success: Fund something you can’t see—collection storage upgradeThe first stage of Geelong Gallery’s collection storage upgrade campaign has raised $25,338 through the support of 104 community donors during our recent 30-day Pozible campaign.
