Love Stories.jpg

Waterways cultivates place-based creativity through reflection of the aquatic ecosystems of the Great Southern in Western Australia and has had a number of developments and iterations since 2017. It expresses the motif of family and home, people and place, with the idea of one can not exist without the other. Sharing stories of local peoples intimate connection to these water places; aims at creating art as social change and emphasising the importance of our eco-cultural identity. Which enhances knowledge and builds a shared sense of belonging and investment, of these vital ecological systems that might just make a difference to their appropriate management.
