To mark 50 years since the establishment of Kambah, Tuggeranong Arts Centre and photo access are offering a unique, limited opportunity to aspiring, emerging and established photographers. During three workshop sessions with an experienced photo access facilitator, Jordan Stokes, select a historic photograph, reshoot the scene with your disposable cameras and continue your investigation of Kambah. Each participant will be provided with disposable cameras, film development and image scanning. The images produced will form a historic time-capsule of Kambah in 2024 with each person receiving a printed concertina book and selected postcard images to keep.

The workshop dates are Saturday the 31st of August (11am – 2pm), Saturday the 7th of September (11am – 2 pm), and Wednesday the 30th of July (6 – 9pm).

A selection of the images produced during the workshop will be added to Tuggeranong Arts Centre’s exhibition Kambah Turns 50. The “Now and then” project exhibit, will continue as part of the Kambah Turns 50 until the close on 12 October!
