We Built this City
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day – but with a lot of help, the Itty Bitty City grew from a few buildings to a sprawling metropolis in one Saturday afternoon in Sydney.
LMNOP headed down to the National Art School in Forbes Street Darlinghurst for the special family launch of Art Month Sydney. With us – a truckload of your basic urban building blocks (cardboard, glue, scissors, glitter) and a few of Joel Henriques’ brilliant Paper City drawings.
This is how the City looked at the start of the afternoon …
This is how it grew …
And grew …
As you can probably tell, we had a brilliant time and we think our volunteer town planners did too.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generosity of Joel Henriques, whose simple, eye-catching Paper City designs inspired the whole thing. If you want to make your own City at home, download Joel’s templates here at Made by Joel.
We’ll post more pictures next week! Thanks to everyone who came along today to help create the Itty Bitty City. Hope you had as much fun as we did!
And a BIG thank you to the following organisations and individuals who made today possible: Reverse Garbage; Art Month; National Art School; Made by Joel; Paperklip; Liane Rossler; Michelle Hadorn; Serena Geddes; Kieth Yap; Ian MacPherson; Kathryn Bailey; Elizabeth Bentley; and a special ‘thank you’ to Ingrid at Reverse Garbage.
