A Community Arts Photography Exhibition
@ Courthouse Gallery, Balaklava (South Australia)

The Field of View exhibition presents original photography by locals from the Wakefield region and is the culmination of a community arts project hosted by the Wakefield Regional Council Youth Advisory Committee (YAC).
As a collection, Field of View presents diverse and stunning images taken by award-winning artists and emerging local talent. Included are a number of original works from young creatives, whose ‘field of view’ offers an inspiring and unique representation of the Wakefield area.
Through the project, participants have been engaged in photography mentoring and skills development with professional artists Jessie Boylan and Lisa Redpath. On offer was an open community workshop, one-on-one sessions, as well as a tailored event for young people.
The opening event is an opportunity to celebrate the exhibiting community artists, and will be officially opened by Mayor James Maitland, Wakefield Regional Council. Light supper and refreshments will be provided.
