Warnings This exhibition deals with themes of violence and hostility toward LGBTIQA+ people and may be confronting or distressing to some attendees.  

This event runs from the 9th February to the 4th March, during the Albany Entertainment Centre’s normal operating hours: Monday to Friday, 10.00am – 5.00pm.

Pride Project is a compelling art exhibition that strikes a balance between storytelling and artistry from photographer Lauren Crooke. The cinematic images are a communal narrative, and profound exploration of the LGBTQIA+ community’s experiences and often untold stories of adversity. 

Each piece inspired by real-life accounts submitted by members of the community which Crooke has carefully translated into visual form, using lighting donated by major sponsor, Team Digital, and special effects equipment to direct dramatic scenes that evoke significant narrative and atmosphere. Crooke’s works extends beyond documentation; a photographer with an eye for narratives that resonate and connect, Pride Project encourages an intimate dialogue with the viewer, turning spectators into participants. 

This exhibition will be proudly displayed in the foyer of the Albany Entertainment Centre for the duration of the Albany Pride Festival from the 9th of February to the 4th of March. Entry to the exhibition is FREE however we encourage visitors to consider supporting the photographers work by purchasing a print from the collection here: https://www.laurencrooke.com.au/category/all-products 

Please note: this exhibition deals with themes of violence and hostility toward LGBTIQA+ people and may be confronting or distressing to some attendees.
