How does traditional knowledge, technology and art contribute to how we understand our relationship to water? Come to the Bribie Island Seaside Museum to find out, with some presentations from participants of the Weaving Water at Yarun ArtSci program.
This event is part of Treecreate’s inaugural Weaving Water at Yarun program on Bribie Island with participants visiting from the USA, Europe, Asia, Vanuatu, Aotearoa New Zealand and interstate. Many of the residents are internationally recognised for their work and have significant standing in their fields, with more than half of the group also identifying as First Nations.
Weaving Water at Yarun is an opportunity for enriching cultural and creative exchange, and raising environmental awareness with a focus on the ecosystems of Yarun (Bribie Island).
Public events will present BIEPA projects and people, including the Dugong Diaries project, at the Weaving Water @ Yarun Symposium, and a talk by Darren Jew at the artists talks event at the Bribie Island Seaside Museum.
Our public events include:
29 November, 2 & 5 December Workshops at the Bribie Island Seaside Museum
30 November A symposium at the Bribie Island Retreat and Recreation Centre
3 December An open day at the Bribie Island Retreat and Recreation Centre
6 December Artist talks at Bribie Seaside Museum
