The Ballarat International Foto Biennale Sept 4 - Oct 4 2009
Emerging from the embryonic and highly successful Daylesford Foto Biennales of 2005 and 2007, the Ballarat
Festival aims to enlarge and expand on the concept into a truly world-class, global event.
To be held from 4th September to 4th October 2009 the Biennale will bring some of the very best international and Australian
photographers to Ballarat for a month long celebration of eclectic and exciting photographic exhibitions. All told the 2009
Biennale will comprise somewhere between 120 and 150 separate photographic events, including workshops, seminars, portfolio
reviews, multi media presentations and special events as well as a series of Fringe Festivals in Ballarat and the outlying
region including Daylesford, Creswick, Trentham and Clunes.
ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF TRADITIONAL OWNERS
The Ballarat International Foto Biennale takes place on country of which members and elders of both the Wathaurong and
the Djadjawurrung communities and their forbears have been custodians for many centuries. On this land their people have performed
age old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the
life of this region.
Some people with a disability require the assistance of a carer or companion to access venues and events. The Ballarat International
Foto Biennale offers a second ticket free of charge to people who possess a Companion Card to BIFB 09 Seminar Program and
Projection Program evenings.
