Native Species: Bio-art Talk & Workshop

Sunday 21 February, 2.00pm & 3.30pm

Suitability: All Ages (Children must be accompanied by Parent/Guardian)


Native Species is a bio-sculptural installation in Orangefield Park, which reflects on our responses to changing landscapes, human and non-human migration, and bio-diversity loss. Using materials such as mycelium (fungus), birdseed and green vegetation, the sculpture invites birds and insects to occupy and transform it. The work will be accompanied by an artist talk, which will provide a deeper insight into Jasmin’s research and inspiration for the work. You will be able to retrieve the talk at the location via the app Echoes. 

During a workshop people will be able to create their own birdseed sculptures, which they will be able to display outside their own homes.

This event will commence at the Grand Parade entrance of the park. 


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic situation we have a few important requests for you to ensure that the event is safe for everyone attending or facilitating.

It is your responsibility to let the organiser know that you can no longer attend the event. Refunds can be facilitated and the space made available for another only if the participant contacts the organiser 48hrs ahead of the event.

Please arrive at the workshop on time. It is a small group, but please be patient and maintain a 2 meter distance from other people/groups when you arrive.

When you arrive on site, please:

• Use your own personal hand sanitiser or hand sanitiser provided by the event facilitator

We look forward to seeing you there.
