27 and 28 September 2014
Biodiversity was the theme, explored through Conversations, Artworks and Bioblitz.
Finding our Place in the Anthropocene was a series of talks led by experts in their fields, hosted by science broadcaster Robyn Williams and taking place in small groups scattered over the lawn of the homestead.
Artworks included Rosemary Laing’s works in the Homestead’s upstairs gallery, Janet Laurence’s Treelines Walk, a planted artwork tracing the environmental history of Bundanon, as well as works by Nigel Helyer, Starrs & Cmielewski, Stalker Theatre, De Quincey Co and Embodied Media.
The Bioblitz was a series of walks wherein members of the public explored particular aspects of the Bundanon site in the company of specialists, the aim being to document the variety of species present and register the findings on The Atlas of Living Australia.
It's fun and it's serious, at the same time....
