Warringa Park School Residency

Warringa Park is a dual mode school which caters for all children with an intellectual disability and has a current enrolment of 431 students. (Taken from their website) I am there every Wednesday this term working with 4 classes from the middle years to create 3d sculptures/lanterns of endangered species for their end of year performance “Walk on the Wild Side” The event is during the day so they won’t be internally lit…. It has been a crazy journey….maybe a little ambitious but now they are made and papered and ready to be decorated ….

Lantern Season is over…for this year

Since returning from the  Bird Lab Residency is Sweden I have been deep in lantern land. First the Lismore Lantern Parade This year we celebrated the 20th anniversary of this fabulous event. and then INTO THE LIGHT – Cycles of Change. This was the 4th year for INTO THE LIGHT, which started in response to the 2009 Black Saturday fires. Each year we have reflected on the process of healing and with a group of local artists,designed an event in response to where the community is at now. It is a very special event. I feel privileged to be part of it…
