Colleen Hughson (Warrnambool), Carmel Wallace (Portland), Catherine Bailey, (Narrawong), and Sandra Winkworth, (Sydney) have each created a site-specific performance, installation or video in response to the trees and green spaces, in Portland, Victoria.
These works have been uploaded to a VAP Portland webpage, for sustained and continual public access and archival purposes. Smart Phone technology has been used to scan QR codes linking to the website in the Portland Botanical Gardens. These QR codes placement will be noted online and on the facebook page, along with a map detailing where the artworks were originally inspired in the town.
* The project The Virtual Arboretum Portland was made possible by the Australian Governments regional arts program, the Regional Arts Fund, which gives all Australians, wherever they live, better access to opportunities to practise and experience the arts. The Regional Arts Fund is administered in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria.
Please see our sponsorship page for more information about the Regional Arts Fund.
