Sunday, June 30th, 2013

Well Reportage Censored officially opened yesterday with some great talks by MP Amanda Fazio, Mike Bowers, David Maurice Smith and Festival Director Stephen Dupont

Now is the time for extended thanks and an update as to the conclusion of the Exhibition in the coming days…

 

Ed Giles, Reportage’s Projections Editor is back into gear after the Festival, home in Cairo and covering the events unfolding…

Big thank you to Ed for all his work this year at the Festival and he was missed yesterday at the opening of  Reportage Censored that he co-curated together with Assistant Director Anna Maria Antoinette D’Addario.

Ed was one of the driving forces to get the projections seen by the public and the images out on the street!
He was also one of the photographers affected by the censorship of the projections.

Reportage extends special thanks to…

Anna Sinclair, Mike Bowers, Michael Corridore, Hannah Rose Robinson, Damian Garbenis, Holly High, Jessie DiBlasi, Jeremy Amann, Photoville, Canon, Sam Barzilay, Laura Roumanos, Russell Frederick, Nathalie Swainston, Iona Uzell, Noorderlicht’s ‘Cruel and Unusual’ curated by Hester Keijser and Pete Brook, Bruce Gilden and Magnum, Sydney Posters, Coda Audio, all the participating photographers, Reportage
supporters and all the Reportage Censored volunteers.

And to all the speakers that came out yesterday…

David Maurice Smith, MP Amanda Fazio, Mike Bowers and Festival Director Stephen Dupont.

At the end of the installation we will be posting online, the feedback we have received from the public over the course of the Reportage Censored Exhibition. This information will be compiled and forwarded to Destination NSW and the Minister for Tourism.

Whether they choose to consider the information forwarded to them is beyond our control, but we have information stating that people ARE interested to take an active decision into what they want to see in Sydney Cultural events in the future.

We can only hope that this will continue in the coming years as both the local and State government have made a five year agreement and investment in Sydney’s cultural activity:

Thanks for all your support!
