Do it on Darling!
When: Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 12:00pm until Sunday, July 1, 2012 at 11:30pm

The newly founded Rozelle Contemporary Art Precinct (RCAP)* is giving you the chance to
get down and creative along Darling St to win a great big Darling package
‘(and we might just throw in a pretty pink tiara as well).
So what do you have to do?

1. Take your shot

Use your skills to make a temporary scene highlighting the people and places of
Darling St (see map below) – create a temporary artwork, dress up, do a photo shoot,
use it as a backdrop for a music video or performance piece – whether you’re an artist,
performer, musician, designer, photographer or socialite show us the best you’ve got and
capture your darling on film or photo.
Not to put a leash on your creativity – feel free to be cheeky,
but keep it clean this is a family event.

2. Make the brag

Upload your done little darling to “Do it on Darling” web page where it will be
featured on RCAP website and Facebook page. Show everyone how awesome it is and
get your friends to LOVE it to win the people’s choice award. The Judges’ choice
award will be based on concept, technique and impact.

3. See if you scored

You’ll get your chance to be in the spot light and
maybe even wear a pink tiara and winner’s sash!
Each month we will showcase a selection of finalists on the RCAP website
to go in the running for the major grand prize at the end of the year.
The clever Winners will receive complimentary tickets to special arts events,
a package containing vouchers from some of the very best restaurants and cafes
in Rozelle and let’s not forget bragging rights across some wicked websites and
media as well as be featured in some very groovy RCAP events.
