A Food Forest

My cheesy tourist shot.
View from the 5th floor of the MCA.

As a result of the Artist as Family project we did in Newcastle, I am very excited to share the news that we have been invited to participate in the In the balance: art for a changing world show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Sydney from 19 August to 23 November 2010.

The project we have proposed is a community food forest. We will have a presence in the gallery, though our main body of work will be in a public park.

We have been to Sydney twice in the last month to meet with the MCA and the City of Sydney to discuss the details of our project and to agree on the right site for the work.

We have just updated our Artist as Family blog with our first post of the project. Do check in on us there from time to time to read about our progression. We will be listing the details of our workshops and working bees, so if you're in the Sydney region, please keep in touch and come and join us.

You know what I just had a brain wave- after reading the Artist as Family post and then coming back to Land of Meg and saying to myself
'OHHHH I would love to see that' I looked at the dates and said to myself, just go, catch the train up to see the trees and the show, so I will..
Can Wait.
