Townsville INK info night - March 7 @ The Brewery

We are so excited to be working with Townsville photographer Kate Glover on her second volume of Townsville INK.

If you haven’t seen it around, Townsville INK is a stylised photo book that celebrates the tattoo artwork of Townsville residents while raising money for ACT for Kids (formerly the Abused Child Trust).

Kate’s first book —  launched in April 2010 — raised more than $10,000 for ACT for Kids and generated priceless awareness of the organisation, its initiatives and victims of child abuse. This time around, we hope to double that figure by getting more tattoo enthusiasts and corporate sponsors on board and promoting the book across Townsville from  pre- to post-production.

So far, we’ve got some greatsponsors on board including The Brewery and Hair to Dye For – but we’re still on the look out for more. Some local sporting stars have also signed on to appear in the book; we won’t reveal their identities just yet so keep your eyes peeled.

A Townsville INK information night will be held at The Brewery on Monday, March 7, 2011 from 6pm. The event will provide anyone interested in Townsville INK with a wealth of information and the chance to provide feedback and suggestions on how they think volume 2 could be made bigger and better than the first. We hope to see you there!
