Nurturing Harmony: The Connection Between Arts and Plants
Curious to know how we’re connecting arts and plants?
An essential part of creating Greener futures is advocating for green spaces. We seek opportunities to escape our echo bubble and talk to new audiences about the benefits of urban greening.
It started in 2018 when we partnered with Living Pavilion to build a temporary landscape at the of Melbourne to highlight the impacts of urbanisation of natural environments and climate change.
The landscape used over 40,000 plants to recreate a lost waterway. The project was a huge success, and we were keen to pursue other opportunities.
Since then, we’ve worked on several art projects, including Polyglot, which developed “When the World Turns” for kids with profound disabilities.
This project was the creation of how we’re connecting arts and plants. The show is multi-sensory and uses native plants in an indoor theatre setting to give kids a unique experience.
The show debuted in 2022 at the Arts Centre with a show that used 10,000 plants and trees.
We’re now part of an ongoing program of shows within schools and rural areas. We continue to support the show to further our vision and provide unique opportunities for all community members.
