Drawing on Country - Change & Adaptation, Country Arts SA

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.

In 2013 and 2014 art enthusiasts interpreted the landscape of Lake Alexandrina as part of Country Arts SA’s Change and Adaptation program in partnership with Alexandrina Council and the South Australian Murray Darling Basin Natural Resource Management Board.

Four local artists were contracted to coordinate and demonstrate ‘plein air’ skills in Goolwa, Clayton, Milang and with the Raukkan community. People of all ages and abilities brought their drawing or painting equipment, cameras or tablets to interpret a perspective of the environment and the artist’s connection to place. These one day events were also held to track the environmental changes in the landscape around the Lake Alexandrina region

Art works from these workshops were shown at an exhibition at the South Coast Regional Arts Centre in Goolwa in December 2013 and 2014. A short film documents the process of outdoor art making and the significance of going out onto country and what being there invokes for people, both individually and collectively.

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