Pandemic Portfolio
#KBPandemicPortfolio

 

 

Capturing the Goldfields story of 2020, this storybook is a snapshot of how life changed for everyday people.  Meet the Kalgoorlie-Boulder locals who took part in virtual live portrait sittings, sharing their personal experiences through candid chats as they were painted.   Full of colour, laughter, tears, and joy. The resilience of our people shines through to be preserved and shared with future generations.

 

Pandemic Portfolio 2022

From the Mouths of Babes

 

This 12-month program aims to help process, capture, and preserve the raw emotions and experiences of pandemic life for families and children.  Your kids get to be the artists, they get to be the stars.

It's such a wild time to be alive with so many topics of passion, angst, and division to navigate, which has brought COVID -19 conversations to the forefront of parenting in 2022. It's time to listen to what our children have to say about all of this and help them process today's world together while building stronger parenting relationships.

 
Phase One
Pandemic Parenting Program

 

Many thanks to Parenting Connections WA, and the Parenting Capacity Fund which supported the production of a collection of home-based worksheets and run a series of workshops that will act as a tool to open discussion between parents and children about pandemic life.  Artworks and quotes produced will be displayed online and at public exhibitions.  The activities will run throughout 2022.

Parents and children are encouraged to also complete their own worksheets for a more enriching experience.  If you are feeling inspired you may like to write a story, poem or create a different artwork using any medium. You may complete as many worksheets as you like.

Phase Two
Exhibition and Publishing

 

The end goal is to hold a final community exhibition in 2023 and publish a book that will capture and preserve what life was like in 2022 from the unique perspective of our Children.  They will be the ones living through years of consequences from how we deal with 'now.'

Corporate Sponsorship is available to be part of making this project a reality.
