    The exhibition curation involved organisation via the Brooklyn Art Library for the acquisition of the official Sketchbook Project sketchbooks for the Australian exhibition in the HR Gallop Gallery in August 2014. This was followed by selection, management and coordination of twenty Australian artists from SCCI-CSU creative industries staff; post-graduate and current PhD students and four professional illustrators and artist/designers. The sketchbooks were professionally scanned and archived after the exhibition for publication on the CSU HR Gallop web-site in early 2015. They will next travel to become a permanent part of the Brooklyn Art Library in, Brooklyn, NY USA where The Sketchbook Project collection is on permanent view to the public. Each book is viewable with an on-line presence, via individually barcoded and catalogued searchable details, like where the book is from, the materials used, the artist's name and tag words. The 20 Australian CSU Sketchbooks will become part of a travelling exhibition in both the USA and Europe in 2015 at a number of venues to be confirmed. The Brooklyn Library via the Sketchbook Project, a crowd-sourced library that features 32,389 artist's books contributed by creative people from 135+ countries with a worldwide community of more than 70,000 artists. By focusing on the intersection of hands-on art making and new technology, The Sketchbook Project nurtures community-supported art projects that harness the power of the virtual world sharing inspiration in the real world. The HR Gallop Gallery Sketchbook Project has generated a subsequent exhibition for 2015 based on artist's books.
