Episode 13

Episode 13 of Visions goes back to the sporting arena this week, following its successful stint on the football oval and at the Melbourne University Sports Centre last episode. Visions travels to Shepparton to take in the sights and sounds of the ASHEletics carnival, before checking out a new art prize which is looking to bring both art and sport closer together. To top it off, we go behind the scenes on a paint restoration project.
