WE NEED YOUR ART What kind of creative projects have you been doing during lockdown? Drawing, painting, music, song writing, poetry, mask making, sculpture? We want to hear from you.
The Franklin Community Arts broker programme is happy to announce a new project to get people out of their homes on the hunt for local art work, and we want you to be part of the fun. Multimedia artist Sarah-Jane Blake has created a great new way to share some of the creative projects people have been working on during lockdown, using a free downloadable Augmented Reality (AR) App as a portal to local artworks all over Franklin. It’s simple, fun, and will get you out of the house to hunt down Lockdown Gig posters strategically placed around your neighbourhood. Find out more how to submit your creative work and we’ll thank you with an $80 gift voucher of your choice.
A map of walking tracks for anyone to follow Lockdown Gig posters hanging on doorways, garden stakes, windows and noticeboards in your area. Simply take your phone with you and use the App to bring the AR concert to life.
