During August 2020, the Water Walks project drew Canberrans together to discover and document their neighbourhood creeks. Three groups of around twenty people, each led by a local artist or photographer, an ecologist, historian or water educator and a writer, walked for an afternoon along Weston, Jerrabomberra and Sullivan’s Creek, following these flows through underground tunnels, concrete drains, abandoned paddock and constructed wetlands.
Through their cameras, walk participants investigated how people ave imagined, used and sought to care for these environments. Selected images were presented as Water Walks, a PhotoAccess community exhibition celebrating the little-known aspects of our urban landscape and exploring these stories they tell of our attempts to live well with water in our city.
Water Walks was a PhotoAccess initiative presented as part of the Where You Are festival 2020 and made possible through the generous support of the ACT Government though Rise Canberra.
