When science and art meet the outcome is yet another example of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.
Put a bunch of enthusiastic citizen scientists in a room – with the challenge of producing ten posters fit for public exhibition – and watch the creative juices flow.
Under the leadership of Robyn Charlton, a dozen or so people put on their creative hats (Red, Green, White and Yellow – to use the Edward de Bono term) to come up with a selection of fact filled posters for installation on a group of trees at Speers Point Park.
Titled: Value our City’s trees, the blurb read:
Do you care about our trees in Lake Mac? Are you artistic? Doesn’t matter if you are or not.
Get together with Sustainable Neighbourhood volunteers to help with this project to encourage an appreciation of our city’s trees. It’s all about getting together for a morning of laughter, fun and creativity to produce some tree themed artworks, highlighting the importance of trees.
To get an idea of the range of picture posters, go to the gallery drop down menu and scroll down to community art. At right is a poster in progress >
Note: This event was held Saturday 10 August 2019, 10am-1pm at Woodrising Neighbourhood Centre, Booragul.
