We are inviting our local Green Square community to get creative and contribute to a large community installation, in collaboration with 107 Projects and artist Nadeena Dixon.
We will be gifting 107 free creative packs to our neighbours with all the materials and support you need to make your own guardian owl to mind you in your home. Plus, you'll create a special native flora patch that will be weaved together by Nadeena in a beautiful installation that will live at Joynton Avenue Creative Centre.
We hope that this project encourages, inspires, and reminds you that creativity and community are key to keeping connected and hopeful.
You'll be invited to see the final work that connects our local stories, for when we can all meet again in person at Joynton Avenue Creative Centre.
There'll be a bonus walking map from Mapping Edges for you to explore the local pockets of nature and civic ecologies that brighten our neighbourhood, and to help you find unique materials for your creations.
