When was the last time you wandered the streets of your town? Artist, Anita Laurence is bringing her workshop Streets of Your Town to Mildura this school holidays, inviting kids and adults across the region to create a linocut print of our town.
Streets of Your Town looks at the unique streets and laneways, buildings, and landscapes, that represent Mildura. Whether it’s the iconic and picturesque Riverfront, the busy hustle and bustle of Deakin Avenue, the water tower, or even the street you call home, come, and celebrate the beautiful region we all call home.
After the linocuts have been carved, inked, and printed, the aim is to bring together everyone’s idea of what ‘The Streets of Your Town’ means to them creating a larger work that represents all the ideas, people, places, and feelings of what makes Mildura home.
