Cubbies : Eco-Living Festival, Avoca

Jill Orr

6 - 16 May 2009

The Eco-Living Festival, Avoca, is the first of a huge body of work created by Lyndal Jones which involved collaborations with many artists, writers, scientists and the local Avoca community. My involvement with the Avoca Primary School, facilitated by the Artist in Schools Program, was to work with the grade five  and six  students to create cubbies from recycled materials emphasizing sustainability in the home. The Twelve Cubbies and a Boat, were shown on the banks of the Avoca River as part of the Eco-Living Festival. These are a few examples.
