ABC Open goes back to school

On 23 September ABC Open Producer Anthony Scully gave up his Sunday to run a workshop at Islington Public School for local community members wanting to get involved in ABC Open’s Now and Then project.

Now and Then is about opening a window on the past by retaking old photographs in their current context. Islington Public School’s 125th anniversary this year was a great opportunity to dig through the photo archives at the school and show how things have changed. The fact that Anthony was also once a student at the school added a personal dimension to the workshop.

The photos taken at the workshop are featured on the ABC Newcastle and ABC Open websites, and on the Islington Village Flickr site.

Find out more about the workshop and current ABC Open projects at the ABC Open website.
