Sydney Science Festival: Discovering Trees via our senses and imagination
- When 13 Aug - 20 Aug 2016
Centennial Park, near Lachlan Swamp, Sydney & Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan, Campbelltown
Senior lecturer Louise Fowler-Smith was invited to participate in the Sydney Science Festival, which will take place 11-21 August 2016 throughout Sydney.
Fowler-Smith’s environmental artist cooperative, The Tree Veneration Society, will host the Discovering Trees via our senses & imagination workshop at Centennial Park, Sydney (13 August) and the Australian Botanic Garden, Campbelltown (20 August).
Participants will discover more about the life of trees through their senses and imagination. The Tree Veneration Society aims to reconnect people through listening, touching, seeing, smelling and imagining the tree, while acknowledging its attributes. Participants will also use traditional technology to make art and explore different creative activities inspired by trees.
UNSW Art & Design students and alumni Miho Watanabe, Paula Broom, Elizabeth Gervay, Amanda Farquharson, Liz Perfect and Jane Green are involved in organising and leading the workshops.
