Less is More

The Rotary Youth Arts Project (RYAP) is a Dancehouse Community Outreach Project, supported by the City of Yarra, the Rotary Clubs of Richmond, Collingwood, Fitzroy and Brunswick, in collaboration with the Centre for Contemporary Photography and with the generous support of Vicki Vidor.

Young people living, studying or attending services in the City of Yarra were invited to participate in a photography workshop at the CCP. The 15-week course, presented by artist and educator Hanna Tai, covered a wide range of photography subjects and approaches to making work, including documentary photography, the urban environment, landscape, identity, abstraction and surrealism. Participants were given digital cameras for the duration of the course. They gained an understanding of the history of photography through excursions to art galleries and discussions about the work of key contemporary photographers. Classes also addressed how to present and discuss students' work, exhibition making, camera skills, terminology, photographic themes and strategies. Participants have adapted strategies and themes to suit their own lives and approaches, in an exploration of identity and self.

Students were ably supported by Michael Meneghetti, RYAP Youth Worker and Rochelle le Pere, RYAP Project Coordinator.

Classes were held in collaboration with dance workshop participants, the other component of the RYAP program, led by choreographers Adam Wheeler and Natalie Abbott, with the support of Glen Moore, Youth Worker.

On behalf of the participants, Dancehouse and CCP acknowledge and thanks:

Vicki Vidor, City of Yarra, Fitzroy Learning Network, Rotary Clubs of Brunswick, Richmond, Fitzroy and Collingwood, Michaels and Rae & Bennett Gallery + Printers.

Without this support, RYAP's Less is More would not have been possible.
