::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: The Writing on the Walls project is being launched tomorrow at 11a.m. in Army Lane, Horsham . That's Saturday the 22nd June 2013. See you there. :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 

WOW Installations

 Work begins on installing Buket Akiz's written piece on the side wall of the library. It's a difficult and slow process, and we realise that this installation process of all of the WOW poetry will not be finished in just a couple of days as estimated in the original plan. Some bricks are denser than other bricks. These ones on the library wall are particularly dense.

There is another line to this couplet by Buket Akiz, it will be installed next week if all goes well with Plan B. 
Looks great, doesn't it?
Already there have been a lot of positive comments about it from members of Horsham's public.

Below are some more images of the library car-park WOW wall, which looks so fabulous in the morning sunlight. I know I've posted some detailed images of this wall up already, but the sunlight makes such a difference, the colours are really fantastic!

Horsham Library Wall - Part 2

Session 2 on the Horsham Library Wall, and it's full already! This week, the WOW team focused on enhancing the wall: filling the gaps, colouring, and adding final messages. 
We had Shauna Stringer join us again this week, to add the Irish flavour to the library wall, as she did on the Army Lane wall. 
Congratulations to the WOW team, it's getting pretty cold after 5pm these days, but the WOW walls continue! Army Lane was enhanced on Tuesday, Library wall Thursday. 
We have one more wall-writing session at Army Lane next Tuesday, to make it look as bright and beautiful as possible for the launch. Come on down to Cafe Thipatiy next Saturday, 22nd June, at 11am. Meet the WOW writers and their families, come on a walking tour of the installed WOW words around the CBD, and enjoy some food catered by the wonderful Cafe Thipatiy staff.
Shauna Stringer asks us how we are in Irish.

Harrison and P'Leah entertain us with a song and dance, Soe Son Di joining in. The spirits are always very high at the WOW wall writing sessions, it's always a good laugh.

The WOW group is on the ABC News Channel this morning at 9.55am, and again at 8.55pm. We made it to National Television!! WOW!

HORSHAM LIBRARY WALL from last Thursday, to be completed by the WOW team and our new participants!
 It was a fantastic WOW session at the Library last Thursday...we had quite a lot of visitors dropping in to make their mark on the wall. It was hard to find a space to write even after just one hour.

Horsham Library Carpark Wall: A Public Write Off!!!

We love Horsham Library! The Horsham Library staff has agreed to let us write on their wall...woohoo! 

Here is the WOW team, preparing the library wall last Thursday for this Thursday's Public Write Off! That's Thursday the 6th June 2013. 

It's the Art Is... Festival week, so everyone is invited to write with us on Thursday. Come and write what it means to you to Belong to this Land.

The WOW team has coloured in the base of the wall, the writing goes above the coloured base. It's heaps of fun, come along and make your mark!
