A Global Treasure in Danger

Deakin-Edge-Tarkine-small.jpg

Join us for an evening that celebrates the beauty and art in nature and the inspiration it brings to the creative minds working to protect it. This event is a curation of artworks from the Bob Brown Foundation's flagship multi-platform environmental arts project: Tarkine in Motion.

Tasmania’s Tarkine boasts 450 000 ha of mountains, ancient Aboriginal cultural sites, jagged coastlines, towering sand dunes, wild rivers and Australia’s largest temperate rainforest. This whole area, however, is under threat from logging, mining and off-road vehicle access that risks the values of this World Heritage Area in waiting. The movement to protect this wild place is in motion and getting stronger.

This evening will feature a stunning art exhibition, short films, music by singer/songwriter Isabel Quigley and a performance by muka nawnta, a group of Tasmanian Aboriginal women. Woven together by international authority on environmental issues MC Rob Gell, with keynote speakers Bob Brown and Australian Greens Senator Janet Rice. 

Prepare to be inspired and set in motion towards protecting takayna / Tarkine.
