What’s happening at PSC…

Over the coming weeks the PSC students across all levels are presenting their semesters work. Their images are presented in a web gallery for first semester first year students and a series of prints for all other years.

Antonia Hempel (Level 3) is shown here during her folio presentation and also the eager first year students waiting for their turn to present!

We wish all the students well for their folio presentations and hope they enjoy their semester break!

Voice of Wildlife

Voice Of Wildlife - Melbourne

Voice Of Wildlife - Melbourne

On Tuesday 31st of May volunteers pasted a 6 x 3 meter poster and over 300 A3 posters in Balcombe Lane, Melbourne on Little Collins St between Swanston St and Elizabeth St.

This project is about bringing Rights to Nature through brining images of nature into the city heart.

The intended outcome and opportunity is for people to realise they are amongst others that feel the same. Confused, impotent, powerless can actually express their concern.. That they can be part of WED and that they can contribute to creating a voice for the wildthings, to make a difference toward turning around Global Warming and the depletion of Victoria’s biodiversity.

The animal images are the works of Ben Wrigley, Sarah Lynch, Jennifer, Chloe Carbines and Trevor Presscott.
