Invitation to schools to participate in Blind Cinema
In the darkness of a cinema space, the audience sits blindfolded. Behind each row of audience members is a row of children who in hushed voices describe a film only they can see. Accompanied by the soundtrack (which has no dialogue), the whispered descriptions are a fragile, fragmentary and at times struggling but courageous attempt by the children to make sense of what they see projected on the screen.
Brisbane Festival invites you to register your interest for this unique work that collaborates with primary school children between 9 – 11 years of age. Performed over 20 times at major international arts festivals the work has toured internationally, encouraging connections between cultural institutions and educational organisations from Edinburgh to New York. Participating schools will also have the opportunity to work with an accomplished International artist who specialises in photography, video, film and performance.
Screening will take place at GOMA between Tues 19 – Sat 23 September which is the first week of the school holidays and each screening is preceded by a workshop with the group of children, performing on the day.
Brisbane Festival will put together a teacher’s information pack to send through to the participating schools which will provide further detail on the above information.
This is a performance that requires concentration, motivation and curiosity from the children and is a very exciting opportunity for teachers and children to work with an international artist.
For more information or to register your school please email firstname.lastname@example.org ...
🌺 We are so excited to unveil our large-scale public art installation today - which pays hommage to our Australian Diggers ahead of Anzac Day this Tuesday. 🌺
Our installation was curated by Brisbane artist and architect Suzanne Bosanquet and features hundreds of larger than life poppies which have been constructed by school children from a variety of Brisbane’s schools.
Pop by over the next two weeks while it is up! #grandcentralhotel #poppybne #poppies #art #brisbane
