Running Rivers is a creative response to my experience with bushfire in our community in 2019. It is a contemporary landscape arts project in development that connects with our waterways to explore themes of belonging, cultural and environmental regeneration and emotional recovery. Running Rivers is a multi-year project that documents the progress of the river through a multidisciplinary series of drawings, paintings, fibre art and film; initially through solo work and subsequently through community-engaged practice.
In 2022, I will undertake a solo pilgrimage along the waterways and document my connection to place through my practice. In 2023, I will create an exhibition consisting of an interactive, multidisciplinary ritual installation and through a community-engaged shared pilgrimage, co-creating a collection of participatory artwork
