Public Program

PORTAL tidal.20: Community Photography Project

Devonport Regional Gallery

PORTAL enters us into the many moments that make up our lives on the North West Coast of Tasmania.

You’re invited to take part in this special community photography project by sharing a snapshot from your day that represents the theme of tidal.

Capture day is:

Sunday 3 January 2021

Each photograph will be used in a public exhibition at the Devonport Regional Gallery as part of tidal.20 Festival, capturing 24 hours of life on the coast and by the river as seen by the people in our community. This will coincide with local photographer Kelly Slater’s This River photography installation, which can be viewed 25-30 January on the multi- use path on Formby Road.
