Humans have used common weeds that inhabit our cities for their edible and medicinal properties for thousands of years. To celebrate our exhibition Plant + Human, the ACP has planned a photographic feast for the eyes.
Led by artist and creator of Wild Stories, Diego Bonetto and exhibiting artist Steven Cavanagh, Photographic Forage will guide participants to discover the little ‘wild’ treasures of Darlinghurst popping-up from cracks in the pavements and bursting out of walls.
Sharing ancient stories of co-habitation and co-evolution, Diego will teach participants how to identify these overlooked plants, while Steven offers instruction on how to capture their distinguishing features in interesting and creative ways.
Each participant will be issued with a booklet detailing sixteen of the most common edible weeds of Sydney, with full-page images and an Instagram feed full of the best kind-of weeds!
This is a family, wheelchair and pet friendly stroll along the alleyways of Darlinghurst.
