This year is now in full swing with some wonderful projects currently underway.

Walkshops

Under the banner of Treecreate, there have been a number of walkshops focused on mindfulness and creativity.

So far there have been walks at Urambi Hills where I am currently an artist in residence, and Ginninderry Conservation Corridor we have done a pilot walk under the banner of “Treecreative.”

There will be a public version of the walk happening on Saturday 1 May. you can sign up to join on Eventbrite.

Current exhibition

Also currently on at Ginninderry is an exhibition at The Link Gallery, titled The River’s Edge. It will be open until 12 April so drop in if you are out Strathnairn way.

Soundout

This year at the Soundout festival, some of my video work was included as part of the Old Media Orchestra. This video was a composite of imagery documenting the Black Summer fires as well as the rivers flows after the fires. The images below are from last year’s Art not Apart festival when the Old Media Orchestra first came together as a group.

Conference

In February, Liz Sweigart and I co-presented a paper about some collaborative work at the BEST Conference on Human Behaviour and Decision Making 2021.

The paper, titled Social Entrepreneurship, values based decision making and Appreciative Inquiry: Treecreate as a case study explored the methods and approaches taken to develop a framework for ethical leadership. The collaboration between Liz and myself has been evolving since we met in Brisbane in February 2020 at the Best Conference 2020: Framing Human Behaviour and Decision Making. I am very much looking forward to how this work evolves!

Meeting of the Waters: Locative Media Oceania

Launched on World Water Day 22 March, this 2.5 week virtual program is a collaboration between Treecreate and Supercluster, hosted by the University of Canberra’s Centre for Applied Water Science.

The Meeting of the Waters: Locative Media Oceania program is designed as a creative response to the themes of water, connection and climate change to explore how locative media can be used to understand these issues, in a collaborative approach engaging science and local knowledge.

The program gives attention to experiential and horizontal learning through the creation of location-based content in interdisciplinary teams, drawing from collaborative practices and alternative forms of (outdoors) education. 

It builds on the very successful Earthlings Locative Media Summer School hosted by King’s College London in collaboration with Supercluster in July 2020. 

Participants need to be available between 18 Sept – 4 Oct, follow the organised online activities for around two hours a day, as well as dedicate about one hour a day to group activity (self-organised).  Parts of the program are pre-recorded and involve self-study.

You can sign up to participate at Supercluster: www.supercluster.eu/waters
