For a 7th year in a row, Reclaim the Lane converted Rooke Lane into a vibrant and creative family friendly event for and by the city’s young people. The event was held on Friday 13 April and attracted some 400 audience members despite the grey skies. 

The afternoon was kicked off with a Welcome to Country led by David Gough from Six Rivers Association. Musical numbers were provided by students from Don College as well as Keep the Beat, who also led drumming workshops for anyone who was interested. Visual flavour was added by Slipstream Circus, local artist Ashleigh Butler who was a roving fairy and Nick Charlton, who had transformed himself into a green unicorn for the afternoon.

The event had a strong focus on audience participation with all community stall holder running activities. In addition, all visitors were invited to work on a communal mural under the stewardship of Loralee Newitt. As in previous years an official mural was commissioned by the gallery and Rooke Lane is now adorned by a new public art work  by Burnie/Hobart based artist Emma Magnusson-Reid.

The event was presented by Devonport Regional Gallery and the Droogs, the Gallery’s young volunteer group, Devonport City Council and Youth, Family & Community Connections Inc.
Reclaim the Lane 2018 was supported by the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Youth week Tasmania, The Australian Government’s Regional Arts Fund and One Agency, Devonport.
