Photowalk Community – Ballarat International Foto Biennale

We welcome MCC Members back to a final Photowalk for 2021! We will be heading to Ballarat International Foto Biennale for the day – note that the photowalk is being held on Saturday, and not our regular Sunday outing.
The Ballarat International Foto Biennale was founded in 2005 and attracts significant International and Australian photographers as one of Australia’s pre-eminent photographic festivals. Held every two years it showcases work from domestic and international artists that is new, previously unseen in Australia or contextualised afresh; the Open Program fosters the development of new artists. 
We are planning to catch the V/Line train from Southern Cross Station – although for those who wish to drive, you can meet the main group on arrival at Ballarat Railway Station. We will spend the day checking out some of the photography exhibitions in Ballarat and there will be some photography opportunities around town while walking between the exhibitions.
All members of the Melbourne Camera Club are welcome to attend. RSVP is essential for planning purposes (by Friday 3 December 9am) – email:
All MCC events require all attendees to check in using the MCC QR code and show evidence of double vaccination, either electronically or on paper. Please see the Photowalk Coordinators on arrival to register.
Biennale Tickets:
Purchase your Day Pass in advance which includes one timed entry to the Linda McCartney: Retrospective exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ballarat plus unlimited entry to access the remainder of the ticketed Core Program indoor exhibitions throughout central Ballarat.
