The Breakfast Club Diaries

The Breakfast Club Diaries is an invitation to you. The plan: Take a photo of a moment during an early morning walk and share it with the world.

The goal is simple. To document, share, explore and discover the uniqueness and diversity of the human experience within the global community, as seen through the lens of personal perception using digital imagery.

Born out of one's desire to capture a moment and the desire of another to experience it, this collaborative arts project has been created by visual artists Susan Gourley and Zoe Hudson (Trap) from Byron Bay, Australia.

Just remember: EARLY MORNING WALK is the key here. There is a limit of ONE image per day per member, Images must be posted the SAME DAY they're taken and accompanied with TIME, PLACE and COUNTRY, thus creating a visual diary that contains a feeling of connection across the globe for each calendar day. How you interpret this phrase is entirely up to you. We look forward to meeting you and viewing the world through your eyes.

Due to the overwhelming response and ongoing success of TBCD locally, nationally and internationally, we were inspired to design a 140 page full-colour Art/Photography book at 190 x 190mm. This is now ready to be professionally printed, bound and published as a limited edition of 500 units with all proceeds, a total of up to $14,850.00 to The Fred Hollows Foundation.

Whilst this project has been officially approved by The Fred Hollows Foundation, we are relying on the generosity of financial contributions in the form of sponsorship and donations to get The Breakfast Club Diaries book printed. We need to raise a total of $9,900.00 and have created pre-packaged sponsorship deals that provide an array of benefits in the form of advertising, promotion and more, for participating individuals and businesses.
