Mosaic

Mosaic is a crowdsourcing photography project and free public exhibition, harnessing the potential of imagery to connect people, places and moments. Every photograph in Mosaic reveals a personal story and a unique moment in time, forming a collective memory of our life and culture in Western Australia. 

Presented by Propel in partnership with the City of Perth, Mosaic is a truly unique project that explores the collective memory of Western Australians. From Elizabeth Quay to Esperance, Applecross to Albany, each photograph tells an individual story about each of our participants, whilst forming a collective narrative about a day in WA.

Register for Mosaic Capture Day 2018

On Saturday 22 September 2018, Propel once again invites you to join us in documenting 24 hours of life in Western Australia directly through your eyes!

Every year, hundreds of people across WA simultaneously step behind their cameras to capture and submit an image from their day to Mosaic, a community-driven photography project and exhibition. We're asking anyone and everyone in WA to set aside a couple of minutes on Saturday 22 September, to capture part of their day on camera.

Use your phone, a DSLR, a film camera, a point and shoot, Instagram, a tablet - whatever you have at your disposal!

After registering, and during the lead-up to Capture Day, we'll send you the upload link. You'll have a week after Saturday 22 September to upload your image and have it displayed in a professional exhibition, alongside other contributions from all walks of life in WA. It's that easy!

Keen? You have until midnight Friday 21 September to register!


Workshops and Special Events

Each weekend throughout the month of September, Propel is partnering with some of Western Australia's best young photographers to deliver some very special workshops and events for young creatives, budding photographers and the whole community!

We acknowledge that all events will take place on the land of the Whadjuk Noongar peoples and pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.

Are you interested in visual arts, photography, gallery exhibitions or all of the above? We need a team of awesome volunteers to be a part of the upcoming Mosaic Exhibition from 16 October - 11 November.
