PORTAL 2023: Community Photography Project & Exhibition

Devonport City Council Tasmania

The Devonport Regional Gallery is thrilled to invite residents and photography enthusiasts to participate in PORTAL 2023, a community photography project that aims to capture the vibrant essence of coastal life on the North West Coast of Tasmania. This exciting project encourages participants to showcase their photography skills and connect with the community through the lens of their cameras. Portal 2023 will highlight the beauty and diversity of coastal living on the Spring equinox, Saturday, 23rd September 2023.

On this day, the Sun crosses the equator, heralding the arrival of spring and capturing the unique moments that make life on the coast so special. PORTAL will enable photographers to capture the many moments that make up our lives on the North West Coast of Tasmania, through this special community photography project. Images must be taken within the North West Coast region, which covers east from Port Sorell, through to Smithton, south to Rosebery and across the highlands into Sheffield.

Convention & Arts Centre Manager Geoff Dobson said, “Portal 2023 is an excellent opportunity for residents and photographers to come together, to celebrate the natural beauty of the North West Coast and share their artistic vision with a broader audience”. “We encourage everyone to take part in this exciting project and look forward to receiving your captivating coastal photographs, which will be included in a public exhibition at the Devonport Regional Gallery” Mr Dobson said.
