Micro Macro Country was a four-week creative program where artists explore digital photography, screen-printing and digital printing. The theme was identity through country, looking close up and far away at the things that surround us. The project inspired the collaboration of digital media and hand made methods of making. Mowanjum Collection was accessed with some artists photographing objects and others using old photographs in their screen print designs. Four creative specialists joined the project, Camera Story, (Jacqueline Warrick and Sarah Landro), Sean Smith from The Ownership Project, and Peter Hatzipavlis from The Print Shop Photography Studies College.

Mowanjum arts workers collaborated with Peter Hatzipavlis from Photography Studies College in Melbourne to develop a range of printed merchandise from the screen prints. Cards, bookmarks and digital fine art reproductions are designed and printed in the Mowanjum art centre media space Dolord Mindi and have become a hugely popular item in our store.
