Everyone has their phone stuck to their hand - We eat with it, sleep with it and take it everywhere we go. But have you ever thought to experiment with your phone to create something artistic?
Bankstown Arts Centre is inviting young women (aged 16-25) to be part of Zoom Lens – a new youth-centred, innovative digital art program.
Participants will be involved in an intensive six-week program, working collaboratively and independently to create a video artwork or short film. The finalised video work will be displayed at our upcoming 2023 Youth Week event in April, The Area: World Tour.
Zoom Len's participants are encouraged to respond to themes related to online culture. This can include:
This is an exciting opportunity to also work closely with our facilitator Angela Blake, Co-Founder of SF3 – SmartFone Flick Fest, Australia's international smartphone film festival. Participants will be provided with a hands-on learning experience and an opportunity to create meaningful work.
Participants are required to attend all workshop sessions on Thursday evenings at Bankstown Arts Centre from 5-7pm. Some sessions will also be held online. Participants will also need a smartphone or tablet device to participate in the program, along with access to a smartphone, tablet or computer to edit their works.
