Jerrabomberra Creek, 2020, by Wouter Van de Voorde
Presented as part of the Where You Are Festival 2020, Water Walks will draw together sixty local photographers exploring and celebrating Canberra’s hidden waterways.
Inspired by experienced local photographers and expert ecologists, historians and writers, during August 2020 three groups will investigate, walk and document often overlooked neighbourhood waterways. Using their cameras to record their experiences, the groups will follow Weston, Jerrabomberra and Sullivan’s Creeks as these streams navigate the city via drains, wetlands and tunnels. The participating photographers will each then contribute images to the Water Walks exhibition, with local writer and environmental historian Cameron Muir contributing a linking text narrative.
Water Walks will open in the Manuka Arts Centre gardens on Saturday, 29 August, 2 – 5pm, with a simultaneous launch via Facebook of PhotoAccess’ online Water Walks gallery.
The Water Walks program and exhibitions are PhotoAccess initiatives presented as part of the Where You Are Festival and made possible through the support of the ACT Government.
