Description
Change and Adaptation is a 3 year partnership program connecting arts, health and the environment. It was established with the awareness that change is the biggest driver in the contemporary world.

This Change and Adaptation (Country Arts SA) project in partnership with Natural Resource Management and Goolwa to Wellington Local Action group honoured volunteers in revegetation, monitoring and preservation of the Lower Lakes / Murray Mouth System. The event included a long lunch hosted by local community volunteers highlighting local produce and a special table and site decoration designed by local artist, Annabelle Collet. An ephemeral recovery arts trail was commissioned from artists Evette Sunset and Mike Tye and constructed from local natural materials to last through a 12 month cycle. Writer/Researcher and performance maker Michelle Murray performed her mythical and evocative poem. The art works all represented the lakes/mouth system and described conceptually the impact of drought and the joy of recovery as water returned to the system. Textile workshops were held with local weavers.

The Long Lunch was held in Milang on 8th April 2014 attended by 100 environment volunteers. Outcomes included ephemeral sculpture trail that shows the seasonal cycles, wet to dry to wet, a mythical poem and performance, mixed media installation and creative documentary film (Lake, Land and The Book about Everything) produced.

Funded through The Australia Council for the Arts, Creative Communities Partnership Initiative with Country Arts SA and contributions from project partners.
