To Melbourne’s photographers: help us capture Melbourne’s iconic laneways before they are transformed into a blank canvas for the Meeting of Styles festival this weekend.
Meeting of Styles is an internationally renowned graffiti and arts festival, coming to Melbourne from 1–3 April 2016.
On the evening of Thursday 31 March, eight Melbourne laneways will be painted over* in preparation for new street art from some of the best known local, interstate and international artists taking part in the festival.
We need your help to capture and record our laneways as they exist now for the State Collection, before the current artwork disappears. We’re looking for photographs of the following laneways:
- Literature Lane
- Blender Lane
- Loveland Lane
- Duckboard Place (The Banksy will not be removed)
- Hosier Lane
- Croft Alley
- Union Lane
How to submit your photographs:
Please complete our collections offers online form and attach one or a sample of your photographs in a low resolution format.
Further information including the technical standards required for images will be sent by return email.
*A number of renowned artworks in these laneways will not be removed.
