Wetland Wander at the Redlands Performing Arts Centre
Wetland Wander, an immersive installation coming to the Redlands Performing Arts Centre from the 16–28 September, aims to inspire engagement in the environmental, cultural and aesthetic values of wetlands.
The unique art-science collaboration will explore the valuable wetland ecosystems with an immersive 360-degree channel video projection, featuring 3D soundscapes that take visitors on a walk through wetland habitats and into species’ niches. It is a chance to get up close and personal with the swamp and sense the beauty and complexity of this wondrous place, and admire the intrinsic, environmental and timeless values of wetlands.
The project is led by Griffith University wetland ecologist Fernanda Adame, sound artist Leah Barclay, walking/media artist James Cunningham and multimedia artist Suzon Fuks. It incorporates knowledge from current and traditional landowners within Quandamooka (Moreton Bay) and Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay countries (Cardwell to Ingham, Queensland).
Wetlands are one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth, storing three times more carbon than terrestrial forests, improving water quality and housing a range of diverse species.
No bookings are required for this free event unless attending the floor talk or workshops. RSVP for these events via the RPAC Box Office on 3829 8131.
