Doctors Beach, Wells Street
NEW VENUE: For Saturday 1 December 2018 ONLY, 11am-5pm, Supper Room Studio Gallery, 29 Alfred Terrace, STREAKY BAY
The District Council of Streaky Bay in collaboration with the VISIBLE team, Streaky Bay Tourism and the Streaky Bay Area School will host a youth focused Science+Arts project GEOLOCATION JOURNEYS ON! in Streaky Bay from 1—7 December 2018 as an innovative element of the VISIBLE event.
Highly regarded South Australian artist, Annalise Rees who is currently an artist in residence at the University of Tasmania with the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies, will visit the region with scientist, Dr. Jaimie Cleeland who researches the foraging and population ecology of endangered marine predators between southern Australia and Antarctica.
On Tuesday 4 December 2018, Ms. Rees and Ms. Jaimie Cleeland, will collaborate with Streaky Bay and Ceduna Aboriginal artists Susie Betts, Cassandra Gray, Jenny Gray and Collette Gray to engage with youth on a Geolocation Journey field trip along the spectacular Streaky Bay coastline. Participants will be encouraged to look at marine predator science and research using art as a lens by sketching, painting and producing etchings and rubbings with mediums such as charcoal, graphite, textas, pastels and watercolours.
Ms. Rees and the broader team will also facilitate two community engagement sessions and an eco–art ephemeral interactive installation throughout the project at the second shelter shed on the Doctors Beach foreshore. The installation will introduce the public to marine predator research through mapping and narrative. Aboriginal mentee artists from ARTS CEDUNA will complete the ephemeral installation on Thursday 6 and Friday 7 December 2018, which will remain on display at the location until 25 January 2019.
The District Council of Streaky Bay acknowledges the support and funding of Regional Arts Australia through Country Arts SA, the VISIBLE team and Streaky Bay Tourism, the Streaky Bay Area School and the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania for the Geolocation Journeys On! project.
