Tiny Parades was a series of five public processions that took place in May and June 2015, winding through the Perth CBD. Both solemn and tongue-in-cheek, the parades championed a selection of human-scale struggles and joys, while examining the nature of protest and public action.
Tiny Parades was commissioned by the Perth Public Art Foundation as a part of PerthFLUX 2015. All videos by Michael Maclean, photos by Michael Maclean unless otherwise stated.
