portrait project charters towers - exhibition open now at The World Theatre Charters Towers

An exciting initiative begun in 2010 by photographer Karen Tenni, participants were selected or nominated from Charters Towers Residents (approx 8,500 in the region) and cover a broad spectrum of professions, ages and cultural backgrounds, providing a diverse study of Australian regional life. With the support of the Regional Art Development Fund (RADF) - a Qld government and Charters Towers Regional Council partnership, the project culminated with an exhibition at the Don Roderick Gallery in October 2011 as celebration of the first part of this project.

Charters Towers is a regional town 130km inland from Townsville in Queensland. Main industries are mining, cattle and education, with a broad range of support services and organisations.

The Charters Towers Portrait Photo Project comprises of digital environmental photographic portraits of significant and interesting residents in the Charters Towers region.

Each participant chose to have their photographic portrait taken in one of three locations (work, home or play); answer a few questions about their life in Charters Towers; and introduced or suggested another resident they think will add significance to the project.

Stage 2 will begin soon... do you know someone who should be immortalised ? Someone who makes a valuable contribution to the community, and is not usually recognised?

If you would like to be part of this project, please contact Karen Tenni on 0409 005 085, OR email OR private message on facebook OR complete the nomination form in the World Theatre gallery.

The first film to feature all living Monty Python members since Monty Python's The Meaning of Life in 1983, it also marks Jones' first film as director in nearly 20 years. The film stars Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Rob Riggle, Eddie Izzard and Joanna Lumley, with the voices of Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Eric Idle and Robin Williams in his final film role.
Neil Clarke (Simon Pegg) is a disillusioned schoolteacher, who suddenly finds and uses the ability to do anything he wants, a challenge bestowed upon him by a group of power-crazed aliens (John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) watching him from space. As he struggles to deal with these new found powers and the events that subsequently arise, he calls upon his loyal canine companion and best friend Dennis (Robin Williams) to help him along the way.

"It is a very silly, eccentric British film with comedy coy enough to suit the whole family and Python devotees"
