TWO BRIGHT LAKES on ABC’s ‘ART NATION’ this Sunday / OTOUTO in ARTS VICTORIA’S ‘UNFOLD’ series by blak3b5

This Sunday on ABC1 at 5pm and ABC2 at 920pm, Hazel, Tig and Blake from Two Bright Lakes and other artists from the Schoolhouse Studios will be on ABC’s Arts Nation talking about all things Two Bright Lakes, how it all started, where it’s going, who’s involved, what we eat for breakfast, that sort of thing.  It’s bound to be equal parts enlightening and embarrassing, we hope you can tune in to watch.  If you missed it, click the banner above to have a look…

And Otouto are taking part in Arts Victoria’s Unfold series which looks inside the arts community in Victoria. Their episode will be screening in the coming weeks on the Arts Vic website alongside seven other talented artists and artist groups.

Two Bright Lakes short doco on The Vine by blak3b5

Somehow there was time for us to appear in front of a camera and talk about some of the things that have been going on at Two Bright Lakes.  Full of insights and embarrassments and lovingly put together by Miklos, Max, Chris, Frank and Marc you can view the minutes long piece at The Vine.  It’s all part of the Nice Work series about creative businesses doing things and enjoying themselves whilst doing said things.
