Participating in activism in the Melbourne CBD? Or by marrying environment and art at St Kilda Town Hall? Either way, be sure to make your mark at the world’s largest celebration of the environment.
On Wednesday 5 June, the Wilderness Society is celebrating our State’s majestic native forests and raising awareness about Victoria’s logging practices. Every day, 8 city blocks of Victoria’s forests are logged, mostly to make products like inexpensive copy paper. At 12.45pm, there will be a joining of hands around one of Melbourne CBD’s two hectare city blocks, to show solidarity for protecting forests such as Toolangi. Find out where and RSVP.
The following evening, 6 June, there are a raft of free arts workshops on offer at the City of Port Phillip’s Creative SustainAbility event: Indigenous plant illustration; Treasures from country and Natural dye-making, to name a few. Channel your inner Namatjira! And don’t miss an unforgettable Boon Wurrung Ngargee performance. View Program.
