Discussion: On Collaboration, Consumption & Care
Join South Australian visual artists Heidi Kenyon and Henry Wolff for a discussion with nationally acclaimed author and plant studies researcher Prue Gibson. This conversation will explore the inseparability of humans from nature as they consider the nature of home. Together Prue, Heidi and Henry will explore the subjective life cycles of plants, unpack our collaborative and consuming relationships with the natural world (with attention to neuroactive plant rituals), and examine how care as a methodology brings us closer to nature.
Location: Radford Auditorium

Wellness with Art with Tanya Voges
Wellness with Art is a movement and mark making workshop centred around embodying ideas of spaces that connect to personal and universal meanings of home. Using processed based practice, participants are invited to capture the ephemerality of dance and practice mindfulness through movement and mark making in connection to works of art in the Art Gallery collection. Small groups explore the nature of home through physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual attachments to home and place with interdisciplinary artist Tanya Voges. Presented as part of WellFest 2023.
Tanya engages with community through site-specific performances, workshops, and choreography for diverse groups, from mothers with their babies, youth dance practice, professional performers through to the elderly.
