Melbourne, Your Way

A picture says a thousand words – and it’s Melbourne’s turn to speak up! Now in its third year, Colour Box Studio’s Disposable Camera Project is matching old-school photography with people power to capture a day in the life of urban Victoria. Register online as a participant in this year’s project and come September 20, you’ll be issued with a disposable camera that you can use to photograph the things you love most about your city, and maybe some of the things you’d like to change. Colour Box will process and print your photos, displaying them in a group exhibition that opens on October 2 at Footscray’s Ruffian Gallery.

Got something to say about Melbourne? This is a unique chance to bring the issues that are important to you and your community back into the public dialogue. As a clue to their popularity, Colour Box have already passed the target on their Pozible campaign to make the 2014 chapter of the project bigger and better than ever. You’ve got two more weeks to register – just make a pledge of $25 or $55 to secure your patch of wall in Melbourne’s living museum.
