 2018 Workshops and events 

Girthy With Slim Edges" Saturday 30th June @ 7pm

"Girthy; with Slim Edges" is an exhibition showcasing the work from The Grand Section, a year-long study of Australia's architecture, east to west. Exhibiting publicly at Willunga out of a recycled tent structure on Saturday and speaking at the WEC on Saturday evening.

Feeling an itch that was un-scratched by institutionalised learning, local architecture students; Owen and Bobbie, wanted to study their own country as a precedent for architecture rather than the traditional European, American or classical influences. They undertook a journey to slowly get intimate with Australia's girth. They rode their push bikes 7650km over 10 months, had 19 ‘stops’, 19 exhibitions, pedalled 6,303,600 times, had an encounter with one aggressive horse, 12.5 punctures and zero ‘psychopaths’, all in one pair of shoes at an average of 12.5km/hour.

In 2017 between February and December these non-cyclists documented the Architecture of Latitude 25 across Australia. Stopping for one week in 19 places, the duo would engage with locals, document and analyse the place and its architecture, and present back their findings to the communities they stayed with. This cross section of Australia's Architecture is unprecedented. The work they produced enroute is now collated into the exhibition, “Girthy; with Slim Edges” which will tour the country from June - October. Broadening the conversation about architecture and Australia, the exhibition delivers australia’s innards to its outer fringe giving insight into the reality of Australia and the regional and remote areas of this incredible country.
The duo will talk with the WEC about their findings from the transect they journeyed across Australia. Their presentation will talk on their Australia centric discoveries, documentation and links between environments, people and buildings.

A donation of $5 would be appreciated to the cost of the supper with the balance going to our YACCA youth group.
