What: Blak Nite 2005
Where: Carclew Youth Arts Centre
When: Saturday 19 March - 6pm to late
In Feburary 2005 Jimmy. C coordinated aerosol Art workshops were at Tandanya in Adelaide with indigenous youth to produce art works for the stage and set design for Blak Nite, which is to be the closing event for the Come Out festival 2005. The theme was 'Electric Underground' and the pieces fused traditional dot painting styles with contemporary hip hop styles. Blak Nite is at Carclew Youth Arts Centre on March 19 from 6pm to late. All are welcome!
Project supported by Tandanya and Carclew Youth Arts Centre.
A selection of the participants then went on to produce another set of work in an intensive follow up week of workshops to form an exhibition in the Kuarna gallery at Tandanya, entitled 'Mix it up Deadly' as part of the COME OUT YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL 05. The process of the workshops was filmed and edited, which will form part of the final exhibition. The exhibition opened on March 4 and continues to May 1 2005. Go check it out!
