After a very busy first 6 months of this year, I’ve finally got back to putting StreetBeat back on the agenda. There are some changes and I’m trialing something different. The aim of all of this is learning to ‘see’ so the arrangements and format will be different from what you might be used to.
StreetBeat will run on the last Friday of the month at 10am, at a location in Melbourne that will be accessible by public transport. (so mark your calendars). The location will be announced in Waverley Watson each month.
The format will be a little different, so instead of just wandering around a location, participants will be given a theme to look for. This might be an art element (a color, shape), shadows, words, people, reflections or light. Participants will be given an hour and a coffee spot for us all to reunite for some social time.
Afterwards people are welcome to continue on their street photography journey or head off home. New photographers are always welcome and we will try to link you up with someone that can help you.
I hope you will join me to get to know Melbourne better and to see Melbourne through fresh eyes. If you have any further questions please just ask.
And yes, the first StreetBeat will be this month, on Friday 28th July 2023 at 10am on the steps of the State Library for our first challenge.
