Photowalk Community – Exhibition & Lightscape Trail
July 3, 2022 @ 3:30 PM - 7:00 PM
We welcome MCC members and friends to this weekend’s photowalk.
For this month’s outing we are keeping it local – starting with a private viewing of Men with Heart exhibition at the MCC Clubrooms, followed by an evening at Lightscape at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
Men with Heart Exhibition has been on display at the MCC Clubrooms over the past month, final day is Sunday 3 July.
- The exhibition was photographed by Paul Hoelen and brought to life by Tasmen through a Tasmanian Community Arts Grant and has travelled to four locations throughout Tasmania since October 2018 with over 8000 visitors. The feedback from the exhibitions so far has been incredible. Both from demand and invitation, the project is now expanding to travel nationally to support regional men’s work happening around Australia and provide inspiration, hope and deeper conversation about what the definition of healthy masculinity can be in our society today.
Lightscape at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
- For the very first time, an immersive, after-dark experience comes to Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne this winter. Iconic tree canopies will be drenched in colour, vibrant bursts of light will tumble from the undergrowth and run up trees like fizzing fireworks.
- Explore playful beams of light, walk through glowing tunnels and linger at waterside reflections. It’s an illuminating winter walk in a unique natural wonderland that you won’t want to miss.
- Important: Buy your ticket in advance for the 5.30pm session, tickets may sell out fast. If unable to buy a ticket for the same session, buy for a later session on the same date, and we will try and get in together
