Event Description

Joondalup Library Meeting Room Three

Coming to Joondalup Festival 2022 is an exciting new community arts activation: hART - My Neighbourhood.

Schools and Community Groups within the City of Joondalup have been offered the opportunity to partake in a community art installation that will be on display in the picturesque, Hillarys Boat Harbour. The installation will be displayed over the three-week Joondalup Festival period, encouraging families to visit the space in a relaxed environment at their own leisure.

The workshops will help you to see and appreciate the rich variety of shapes, colours, textures, and patterns in your environment. The workshop will also focus on the light and how appearances change with weather conditions and time of day. The workshops will contribute to the international Colour Literacy Project and produce images to be included in hART – My Neighbourhood, an installation by public artist Sean Adamas for the Joondalup Festival 2022.


Afternoon Workshop, 1.00 pm - 3.00 pm

Participants will work with a standard format of five colours in nesting squares and diamonds to capture the colour character of a photograph. Those who participated in the morning workshop can use one of their own photographs; those who are only participating in the afternoon workshop will be able to work from one of the photographs that will be supplied. Stencils and colour samples, scissors and glue sticks will also be supplied as well as sheets of card for sticking down the designs.

Each workshop will be self-contained and it will be possible to attend either or both. Each workshop will also include some ‘eye-opener’ activities which will reveal some surprising aspects of ways in which colours interact. The workshops will be led by Paul Green-Armytage and Sean Adamas.



Juliet Albany has a background in geography and is a graduate of the Curtin University School of Design. She has worked on the design of streetscapes for the City of Perth. After relocating to her namesake city of Albany she has been working on ideas that are, in many ways, aligned with the Colour Literacy Project, especially with her emphasis on seeing. Her particular focus is the way that sunlight and the angle of the Sun are of critical importance to reading colour throughout the day. She presented her ideas in a paper at the world congress of the International Colour Association in Sydney in 2009 and has helped organize two weekends in Albany for the Colour Society with guided walks and discussion.

Paul Green-Armytage taught in the School of Design at Curtin University for 30 years. He developed a research interest in colour and was awarded his PhD in 2005. He is a past president of the Colour Society of Australia and has served on the Executive Committee of the International Colour Association. He has presented papers at many conferences in Australia and overseas and has published articles in leading journals. He is currently working as a member of the Colour Literacy Project team.

Sean Adamas is a visual artist working predominantly in public installations. His artworks often contain cheerful colours, abstract forms and geometric elements. He likes to inject playfulness and interactivity wherever possible, juxtaposing formal features with contemporary components. Sean has produced diverse artworks, including suspended, standalone, interactive, and floating installations.

The City is delighted to be working alongside the Colour Society of Australia.
