Workshop #2 with Lachlan and Year 10 tomorrow. We will be discussing Suburbia, and how to see the suburbs (and other ‘ordinary’ things) through the eys of a poet.
To begin the workshop, Lachlan and I will both be showing a series of photos of the local area. Mine are mostly of local gardens, skyscapes, and motorways. I’m hoping to inspire the students to find unique and affective imagery in the world around them:
A great resource has also popped up this week – the youth current affairs program on Triple J’s 5.30pm radio show ‘Hack’ is focussing on the SUBURBS. Throught the week they will be discussing Australian Suburbs: Paradise or Prison?
