Meetoo and tiny & little are proud to present Roll Around The Block as part of the NGVs Melbourne Now. Children aged 2-12 are are encouraged to take 24 photos during an outing which capture their view of the cityscape.
When: until Sunday 26 January 2014
Where: anywhere! We will be sharing some ideas of where you can go over the next month – but a good place to start is your own local “block”
Need: You will need a photographic device (smart phone, camera or other) and you will need access to Instagram or Facebook to submit your entries.
Come play Roll Around The Block – a photographic assignment specifically for children aged 2 – 12 years of age.
Based on the simple premise of kids ’shooting a roll of film’, children are encouraged to take 24 photos during an outing which capture their view of the world around them. Through the limitation on the number of photographs, children are inspired to slowly observe and record their environment, while learning basic photography skills and counting. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see the world and its people from a child’s perspective and the photographs can be used to inspire artworks at home.
From the photographs submitted we will be looking for some outstanding works to display at NGV International as part of Melbourne Now.
