Between the 9th and 11th February 2018, Green Skills held a “Seeing Like an Eagle” eco art and photographic weekend at the Porongurup in conjunction with the Friends of The Porongurup group.
The weekend had input from artist Nikki Green (nikkigreen.com.au) and environmentalist Basil Schur and had a focus on the Ranges Link which forms part of the Gondwana Link. Outings were held to the Twin Creeks Conservation Reserve, Lake Kaimerndyip and Castel Rock in the National Park
Designer Donna Chapman will use photos of these art creations InDesign as overlays on a aerial photograph of the scenic country between the Porongurup and Stirling Ranges. The aim is to create a visually striking billboard size artwork that will help promote the eco-restoration work of Gondwana Link and local groups.
This weekend workshop is linked to the Green Skills’ South Coast Festival of Birds and Gondwana Wetland projects, supported by funding from Lotterywest and the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program, supported by Royalties for Regions.
