Lunchbox sessions are back

29 Jun 2017

Library at The Dock’s beloved “lunchbox” sessions are back with visual ecologist Aviva Reed leading the monthly “Dock Eco” creative workshops for the next 12 months.

Ms Reed, an artist and a scientist, wants to help people explore ecology through art.

“The workshops can help people develop skills for understanding the environment and observe it through new lenses,” she said.

“I call it improving people’s eco-literacy. Ecology is about the interactions of different sciences and the workshops can help people visualise the invisible.”

Participants can gain insights into how to apply ecological knowledge into their everyday decision-making and put their ideas into illustrations.

Each workshop will involve a form of creative process, such as watercolour drawing, sketching and paper crafting.

The first session will take place from 12.30-1.30pm on July 4 at the library and will guide participants through “food webs” by looking at what is feeding the food cycle and illustrating relationships in nature.

The free lunchbox workshops will run on the first Tuesday of each month from July 2017 to June 2018.
