This project is an inclusive art experience for all members of the community and a fantastic way to work with two passionate artists who love to connect with people. Liz and Avis will run workshops where participants will use clay and foraged materials to create a collaborative community artwork reflecting the environmental beauty and fragility of Nathalia and surrounds in the form of sculptural “maps”. The work produced will then be photographed and printed as an acquisitive art work for the G.R.A.I.N. Store. On completion of the project there will be an exhibition at the G.R.A.I.N
Store Gallery of the 3D work, a photographic display of participants in the workshops and the final printed “map”.

We are emotionally driven by the belief that we are inexorably linked and totally responsible for our environment and that collaborative Art Projects promote “connectedness”. They can bring together people who may otherwise never speak to each other.Liz Walker and Avis Gardner, 2018
