Walking Upstream: Waterways of the Illawarra is a collaborative project run by three artists: Brogan Bunt, Lucas Ihlein and Kim Williams. They explore creeks in the Illawarra, inviting others to join in, as a way of knowing the local environment more deeply.
As a companion event to the EcoArts Australis 2nd National Conference, everyone (including non-conference folk) is welcome come along for a friendly ramble up Fairy Creek. Participants will start walking from the mouth of the creek at North Wollongong Beach and follow the creek upstream as closely as possible, traversing through the suburban environment for as long as time permits before returning at the starting point.
This is an exploratory, open-ended adventure that is determined by the walkers and the obstacles we are sure to encounter. You are welcome to bring anything you may want to document your experience with, as we observe the creek and its surrounds. Be prepared for a variety of terrain and a great deal of enjoyment!
