CLIENT: CHAPEL STREET PRECINCT

 Hundreds of naked people are set to gather on a chilly rooftop in Australia in July after a supermarket dropped its objections to a mass nude photo shoot by renowned New York artist Spencer Tunick.  Woolworths had refused permission due to fears that a photo shoot in its rooftop car park would disrupt its busy Saturday morning trade, but gave the go-ahead after organizers changed the date.  "We're very supportive of the Provocaré Festival of the Arts and the Chapel Street community in which we operate," a Woolworths spokesperson said, adding that the festival organizers' flexibility with timing convinced the supermarket to allow the photoshoot to go ahead.
