Four artists. One charity. High Five!
Project Five is a compelling month-long exhibition that sees art and charity combine. Join us as Darling Quarter’s bustling Civic Connector and Village Green ignite with the energy and vibrancy of four of Australia’s finest contemporary street artists. There’ll be live painting demonstrations, a public exhibition, kids’ art workshops and an art auction for charity. First produced in 2009, Project Five is now launching Volume 8, with Brett Chan, Georgia Hill, Kaff-eine, and Shida as this year’s handpicked artists. It’s Australia’s longest-running street art project and has raised over $100,000 for Australian not-for-profit arts initiatives. The 2016 nominated charity partner is Monkey Baa Theatre Company, an award winning kids’ theatre company that aims to keep theatre alive across the younger generations. aMBUSH Gallery have created and produced Project Five, and co-present it with Darling Quarter.
