The genU Participate team in Bayside have launched a new art program that has an innovative way of engaging clients and encouraging community connection.
With the launch of urbX, the Participate team has come up with a range of contemporary art programs that promise a “visual and sensory urban culture adventure”.
urbX is not any ordinary art program, with groups of participants (supported by a program coordinator) travelling locally, rurally and closer to inner-Melbourne in search of urban art experiences.
Client groups visit art exhibitions, pop-up galleries, sculptures, installations, and street art locations. While out and about, groups are encouraged to visit markets, sample street food and collect their experiences on their cameras and smart phones.
As wells as excursions, clients are also encouraged to create art of their own using a variety of mediums, including:
- Using spray paint and creating stencils and stickers.
- Experimenting with taking, editing and digitally enhancing photos.
- Learning to use a drone in specific locations.
- Creating a portfolio.
- Creating large artworks and sculptures.
- Being part of mural art projects in the community.
The participants of urbX have been having heaps of fun out on their adventures – checking out street art, visiting galleries and making some art of their own.
