Conversations with Rain
Until 4 November 2019
Conversations with Rain is a partnership with ECU School of Education exploring children’s creative responses to weather as a way of understanding our relationship to climate change. Dr Jo Pollitt and Professor Mindy Blaise are working with Artist Educator Lilly Blue to collect and curate poetic moments from young children’s encounters with materials, ideas, memories and their experiential relations with rain.
Make your own book of rain out of re-purposed materials, read hand-made books from the Library of Rain made by multi-generational AGWA Audiences, and listen to the soundscape made with paper and pencils.
During The Botanical: Beauty and Peril exhibition visit the Imagination Room and contribute to Conversations with Rain, a project exploring poetic responses to weather and our relationship to the environment and climate change.
