Portable Studio Regional Tour mid-way point

After over 1,000kms and five residencies in public libraries around the State, the Talking Difference Portable Studio is now half way through its regional tour.

We started in Shepparton in February where the studio was launched and linked in with community groups as part of VicHealth’s Localities Embracing and Accepting Diversity program and the Emerge Festival.

The next trip was a special outing for the brand new pop-up version of the Portable Studio at Cobram Library. The pop-up studio will be used for events and short residencies.

After touring the Goulburn Valley, we headed to East Gippsland where I facilitated workshops with TAFE students from Bairnsdale, members of local Aboriginal Cooperatives and communities and Shire staff. At the moment, the Studio has a home in the foyer of the library in beautiful Lakes Entrance.

Stay tuned for some of the amazing videos that have been created in the Portable Studio so far. And look out for more updates because next week we make the trip across the Horsham as part of the Art is… festival.
