This project has been developed in response to the 'declaration of a Climate Emergency' by the Surfcoast Shire and is supported by the Shire's Arts Development Seed Fund. It includes a launch, a weekend workshop and an exhibition.
Our aim is to support members of our community in the development of inner peace and to re-sensitise our relationship with the planet.
The project offers practical strategies through a collaboration between ephemeral art, meditation and inspirational speakers to cultivate a connection with nature and promote greater emotional wellbeing as we face the difficult reality of climate change.
The gardens at the Drolkar Buddhist centre are varied and extensive, providing a perfect venue to stimulate ideas for artistic expression, whilst still being a peaceful location to immerse yourself and enjoy the creative experience.
