a short promo for the pages river art project in murrurundi, nsw. full 50min DVD available.
Turning the Pages was a successful marriage of environment, community, art and science to celebrate the significance of the Pages River. It aimed to promote community awareness and appreciation of the geological, biological and cultural history of a major tributary river that meanders its way south to join the iconic Hunter River.
This innovative project involved the installation of a temporary "River Quiver" to engage the community and raise awareness about the importance of the Pages River to the local community of Murrurundi and the Upper Hunter. Workshops were held with community members and school students to make river creatures which were installed on the "River Quiver" for the Pages River Day held on 18 November 2007. Many hours of voluntary labour were needed to ensure the installation was ready for the River Day.
