MEGALO TRIUMPH

beautiful memories of Print Big, Fitter & Turners Workshop October 2010

Congratulations to our dear friends at Megalo on securing the Fitters Workshop (AGAIN) in a bitter battle against the persistent forces of evil !  JUST KIDDING . But the news is music to our ears. And cheers to the old and new Chief Ministers, and the new Minister for the Arts,  for holding their ground on this thorny issue of occupation. The beautiful space is now guaranteed to become a lively, exciting, and dynamic home, and we  look forward to watching the area transform into a world class precinct for visual art.  Once again the heritage space will be filled with busy bustling workers, and all of Canberra will benefit from its output.  The future looks bright for Megalo in this new location, and not just because of all the beautiful big windows.  Below are a few of pics that will remind you of the fabulous time we had when Megalo last occupied this space for Print Big : when visitors from Perth, Sydney and Melbourne were astonished by the vibrancy of Canberra’s vis arts scene. YES we CAN berra. Sorry …
