WILDfire Project - Old School Residency - Mt Wilson

Posted on November 25, 2020

I very pleased to announce I have been awarded a four-week residency at The Old School Mt Wilson to develop my WILDfire project.

During my residency I will be connecting with people from Mt Wilson, Mt Irvine, Mt Tomah, Bilpin, Berambing, Kurrajong Heights, Blackheath, Mt Victoria, Bell and surrounding communities to help me create a faithful collection of artworks which speak of the multi layers of how wildfire touches individuals, the community and the environment.

My purpose is to conserve valuable stories and contribute creatively to the Australian bushfire history.
