When art, science and community come together it allows us to understand the complexity and sensitivities around social and ecological belonging. Art has the power to break down barriers, provoke conversations, and importantly, transcend the politics that too often dictate our regional futures.Kim V. Goldsmith, founder of ecoPULSE and lead artist, co-lead artist of Mosses and Marshes
SPACE, Coonabarabran NSW // 15 May – 16 June 2022
Inhalare / breathe upon aims to transform familiar landscapes into unfamiliar territories. In stages, 12 regionally-based artists of NSW have explored natural environments close to home to develop soundscapes, writings and visual works capturing deep connections and hidden layers, allowing our imaginations to explore those environments that sustain us during times of restricted movement.
