Yes that’s right, we went regional Australia. Micro Galleries took some time to research how this project can transfer from the mega-city of HK to the distant waters of regional Australia.
Bundanon Trust offer a fantastic Artist in Residency program that provides the most amazing location and creative support. The residency involved in-depth consultation with the local community, business sector, council and artists to gauge interest in Micro Galleries. As it turns out, the town LOVED the idea so we are mounting in May, 2015.
