VISIONARY IMAGES > VISUAL CULTURE + SOCIAL CHANGE
At Visionary Images (VI) artists collaborate with young people to develop, produce and exhibit public art. We offer opportunities for the creative and personal development of young people from all walks of life, many of whom have experienced hardship. We aim to exhibit to the broadest possible audience to raise community awareness of the social issues that affect us all. VI exhibits artworks in highly visible, often unusual public spaces, taking art into the streets and every day life.
If you would like to become involved in Visionary Images’ work, please contact us.
Visionary Images embarked on an exciting regional adventure in Bass Coast, Victoria. The pilot initiative R3: Bass Coast.
Stage 1 kicked off in 2011, providing skills and arts development workshops with young people and community partners in the region. R3 Stage 1 wound up in March 2012 with evening exhibitions of created work projected in a shopfront in the main street of Wonthaggi and on the side of Visionary Images’ base studio in Richmond. The exhibitions were a great success with many people getting to see the work and the young people feeling proud of what they had achieved.

VI EXPLORES MORE
Visionary Images has launched a new initiative and as always welcomes input from you. We are exploring new areas of work and broadening our operations to make it possible for more communities to have access to our services. One of the new offerings is a mentorship program where artists, organisations and communities can be guided through the development and implementation of creative projects. If you’d like to know more please contact us.
VI’s leadership program VINYL showcased artwork around issues of mental health and well being to many park users, pedestrians, public transport users and those just driving by. The side of the studio was light and bright with a collection of artworks that challenged the audience to consider how we think about our health and that of those around us. It was a great night and we enjoyed hearing everyone’s response to the work.
