Letters to the Gardens
5:00pm to 10:00pm
If you could communicate with the gardens, what would you say? Drop-in anytime to write your letter to the gardens and then pin it to the growing wall of sentiment.
The process begins with hand-making the paper, by mixing fibre pulp and waste from the gardens, or you can use some prepared earlier. Watch as the wall of thoughts and opinions grow throughout the exhibition and then are returned to the earth in the form of compost to continue to nurture the gardens.
This event is supported by Queensland University of Technology.
Botanic Postal Service is a trans-disciplinary team that met during their QUT Bachelor of Fine Arts studies over a shared interest in community, audience participation, and nature. The group consists of emerging practitioners in the visual arts, drama, and dance disciplines. Letters to the Gardens is their first collaborative art project.
Drop-in event. No bookings required.
COVID registration required on arrival via QR code.
