WHAT: Building the World’s first Permanent Public LomoWall!
WHEN: Week commencing 9th July for 2 weeks
WHERE: Lomography Gallery Store Manchester/Piccadilly Basin

That’s right! We’re going to be building the first ever permanent public LomoWall as part of the 2012 Canal Festival. The LomoWall will be assembled from 14,000 Lomographs on a 30 metre long, 3 metre high wall on Tariff Street, Manchester! We couldn’t make this amazing project a success without your help, so we’re looking for volunteers who want to be a part of Lomography history!

So, what are we looking for, exactly?

You will need to be available full-time from the 9th of July for 2 weeks while we assemble all of the Lomographs and arrange them. You will also need to be available in the week commencing 23rd of July for put the wall into place. Although this will be on a voluntary basis, payment will be discussed with both money and cameras!

Key Skills Required:

Patience is essential- The LomoWall will be constructed from 14,000 individual prints, that’s a whole load of Lomographs!

Attention to detail- Up close viewers will be able to appreciate each picture in its own right but those who take a step back will be able to experience the Wall in a whole new way!

Punctuality and reliability- This is going to be a huge project and will require us to work as a team!

“So, how do I get involved?!” We hear you scream! All you need to do is send an email to jobs_manchester@lomography.com with the word “LomoWall” in the subject, let us know your availability too!

Closing Date: Friday June 15th, 12 noon

Follow us, friend us, check-in, and join us on the following: LomoHome, Facebook, Foursquare, Twitter.

    A Vintage Gallery of Art School Classes

    If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
