Talking Difference Portable Studio in Horsham

The Talking Difference Portable Studio has made its longest journey yet from East Gippsland to the Wimmera. After seeing out the Creative East Gippsland festival at Lakes Entrance library last Monday, the studio came piece by piece across the State just in time for the opening of Horsham's Art Is ... At The Waters Edge Contemporary Arts Festival in Horsham.

It was a real pleasure having a look through the video content created in East Gippsland on the train to Horsham. Keep an eye out for our new website where we'll soon host and build on some of the discussions started by people in the East.

On Friday, members of the Oasis Wimmera Migrant Support Group took part in a fascinating workshop at Horsham Library where we talked through first impressions, and the judgements that we sometimes make based on the way a person looks.

After some final finessing ably completed by Horsham's own Ian Antonoff, the studio was up and running and is now ready for the people of Horsham to have their say until 14 June.
