Roll Around The Block

Roll Around The Block – Events

As well as playing along and sharing your children’s fabulous photographs via the virtual gallery tiny & little and Meetoo will be coming together at the NGV International in the Melbourne Now Community Hall for two events – and you’re invited!

Event 1 – Roll Around The Block Launch

When: 10am Sunday 19 January 2014

Where:  Melbourne Now Community Hall, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Road SOUTHBANK

Cost: FREE

Come and meet Natalie and myself as we introduce Roll Around The Block’s first round of selected images on display at the NGV during the Children’s Festival.  We will be on hand to also answer any questions you might have as well as give tips on how to join in the fun.  Please note that photographs submitted by the 23 January will still be valid for selection to go on display at the NGV – so those who attend this briefing will still have time to get their photographs uploaded and in the running.

Don’t want to wait for the launch – you can begin your “Roll” right now.  Read the online instructions and add images to the virtual gallery on Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #rollaroundtheblock.  Read more here…

Event 2 – Digital Goes Art

When:  10.30am – 12.30pm, Friday 24 January 2014

Where:  Melbourne Now Community Hall, NGV International, 180 St Kilda Road SOUTHBANK

Cost: FREE

Digital Goes Art is a drop-in activity and families are invited to draw inspiration from their Roll Around The Block experience and reinterpret their digital photographs (or the ones supplied) using mixed materials. Parent/carer supervision required.  Natalie (tiny & little) and I (Kate) will be there to answer any questions you might have about Roll Around The Block and Digital Goes Art.

If you can’t join us on the day don’t worry tiny & little will be sharing more about the Digital Goes Art process on their website in the future (visit tiny & little and subscribe).

Selected photographs on display

Each day during the Melbourne Now Children’s Festival four selected photographs from the online submissions (#rollaroundtheblock) will be shared.

See the selected Roll Around The Block photographs on the big screen in Community Hall.  Roll Around the Block screenings will be happening from the 20 – 25 January 2014 on Monday 11am, Wednesday 2pm, Thursday 12.30pm, Friday 12.30pm and Saturday 10am.  Also whenever there isn’t a workshop happening in the Community Hall area the Roll Around The Block screening should be on display – check with a NGV staff member for details.

Where: Community Hall, Ground Level, NGV International

An online gallery of the selected images will be also available as of 18 January 2014 on both tiny & little and Meetoo.
