Fun Photo Collages for the Season

Hi everyone…Here at Boomerang we put together photo collages for Annual Reporting requirements (basically we send these off to people who are looking for photographic evidence we actually did things). I thought we’d share them with you, as sort of a visual summary of what we’ve been doing these last 12 months. We’re still working on the version of Love’s Labour’s Lost…

With your help and inspiration, we will continue to support artists who reflect our changing nation and our vibrant moment in history.
