About the Event
What's it all about?
Kathy Holowko is highly regarded sculpter and fine artist. She has been engaged to facilitate the development of a fungi caravan, to support our community's recovery following the devastating storms of June 2021.
The caravan will be a place of refuge, as well as a creative space to aid contemplation. Those involved with the project will be able to share their experiences both during the storm event, and in the months that have followed.
During this 90 minutes session, participants will cut out fungi shapes from natural history illustrations from early colonisation for display in the caravan.
This activity is supported through funding from the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing in support of Storm Recovery and run in conjunction with Macedon Ranges Shire Council.
Who will be leading the session?
Kathy Holowko loves sculpture, and its many dimensions. She is torn between utopia and dystopia, marveling and questioning nature and humanity. She is interested in the effects that urban life has upon our understanding of ecology. In busy, human centric environments, she searches for narratives and connections that can help reconsider our world as a cyclical, and shared habitat.
