The Robinson Project

Join us at the Devonport Regional Gallery for the official launch of The Robinson Project on Saturday 9th February 2019.

Official Launch: 11.30am – 12pm

In Your Words – The Upper Gallery

Robinson Youth Takeover – The Little Gallery

The Memory Bank – Online Gallery

This event will celebrate the Robinson Collection and those who have dedicated their time over the last 30 years to keeping these photographs alive and accessible to the public, from the staff and volunteers who cleaned and catalogued the collection, to those working on the digitisation of the collection into the future.

Open Your Albums: 12pm – 1pm

Our official opening will be followed by a conversational Open Your Albums session, where you are invited to bring photographs from your own albums to show and share stories.
Documentary photographs from inside the Robinson Studio, held in the Gallery’s archive, will also be shared at this session.

All welcome – no RSVP required.

*The Robinson Project is a collaborative curatorial project between members of the community and curator Erin Wilson.
