Valley Reserve Exhibition – NAIDOC Week 2021

Recently we held an exhibition of photographs from Valley Reserve in conjunction with the City of Monash’s NAIDOC week celebrations.

The displayed images can be viewed in our Valley Reserve Exhibition – NAIDOC Week 2021 gallery and the artist’s statements can be found in the catalogue (PDF 3.7MB).

Thanks to Vicki Moritz, John Noble, Trace O’Rourke, Michael Silverstein and Colleen Singleton for organising the exhibition.

NAIDOC Week Valley Reserve Exhibition

In conjunction with the City of Monash’s NAIDOC week celebrations our exhibition of photographs from Valley Reserve will be open this week in the Track Gallery.

The photographs are inspired by Aboriginal knowledge, culture and the unique flora and fauna found in Valley Reserve, Mount Waverley. We engaged with Aboriginal Elders and artists in the lead up to this year’s NAIDOC Week celebrations, to listen and learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, culture and Country.

More information about the council’s other NAIDOC week activities can be found at NAIDOC Week 2021.

Geelong/Waverley Creative Interclub 2021

In May 2021 the Creative Group invited the Geelong Camera Club Creative Group to a friendly competition to really get everyone’s creative imaginations running. There were two Categories. Firstly, a set subject “proverbs, sayings and idioms” and secondly, an open competition. We were very privileged to have the acclaimed local photographer Doug Porter as a thoughtful and generous judge.
