A project exploring poetic responses to weather.
Led by AGWA's Artist Educator Lilly Blue, join us for an all ages creative exploration of our relationship with rain and the environment through memory, senses and imagination.
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.
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.
