Workshop and walk shop dates: 12 of September and 15 of September
This two day intensive walk-shop/workshop offers an opportunity to engage with some of the invisible aspects of Sydney Harbour. From the microscopic underworld to the often-obscured cultural layers, we will consider place in new ways. On day one we will walk along the Blackwattle Bay foreshore, stopping, observing, questioning, listening and considering the many speculative layers coalescing in Sydney Harbour—ecological, cultural, economic and political. We will hear from experts from diverse disciplines (marine biology, humanities, fine arts), industries (fisheries), and Indigenous knowledge holders of the harbour.
Ultimately, participants will weave new interdisciplinary harbour narratives through the creation of speculative field guides that invite others to experience and respond to the harbour in new ways.
Participants will be invited to present on this project at the upcoming Sustaining the Seas conference (11th-13th December). We will also encourage conference attendees to make use of the future-oriented field guides.
