From the ashes of the devastating fires in September 2019 a revitalised cultural landscape has risen at Binna Burra, yielding a new book, exhibition, and podcast to be launched on the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape within the World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest of Australia – at Woonoongoora (Lamington National Park).
Since the early 20th century, art and science flourished at Binna Burra. For many years the mountain attracted artists, scientists, nature lovers, educators and families who got their hands dirty, worked hard and enjoyed creative activities in this spectacular place.
Now, two dozen creative events linking the arts with nature and science in 2022 echo this early history.
The public is invited to Binna Burra for the launch of the inaugural Artist-in-Residence exhibition, podcast and book. Each of these are direct outcomes from the 2022 Arts. Nature. Science. Program at Binna Burra.
The event includes:
- Performance: Gondwana Echoes by Bloom Collective at 3pm
- Artist-in-Residence Exhibition Opening: Gondwanan Biochromes by Renata Buziak
- Podcast Launch: Art. Nature. Science. at Binna Burra
- Book Launch: Art. Nature. Science. at Binna Burra
‘Over the past two years since the devastation of the bushfires in September 2019 here at Binna Burra we have been focussed on the necessary repair and improvement of our existing hard infrastructure. Those developments continue, but now via the inaugural Arts. Nature. Science. program we’ve also focused on the ‘soft infrastructure’ – those intangible assets that make up the ‘spirit of Binna Burra’ explained Steve Noakes, Chairperson of Binna Burra Lodge.
