Hope Butterflies colony

Interactive community art installation

2000 Hope Butterflies will swarm into the Surry Hills Library this November.

The Hope Butterfly colony created by Nick Baldas was launched in 2018 as part of National Water Week in the Blue Mountains.

This interactive community art installation created by primary school students and artists is crafted from recycled materials, donated artworks and butterflies drawn directly onto stencil paper.

Each butterfly is unique and carries hope wishes on its wings.

If you would like to add your own butterfly to the colony, please contact Nick.

In memory of the Pearl White Butterfly Colony once found within the Royal Botanic Garden.
