As you know the airwalk was devastated in the 2019 bushfires but it is now up and running, A HIP residency at the site was offered in 2019, and there was a great response from HIP members. An overnight residency is now being offered again in (last weekend in March or first weekend in April) 2023 to allow members to respond to the regenerated site. Whilst there, artists will collect images to create prints which will be exhibited later in the year, possibly in November, at the Airwalk.
There is free accommodation for 16 people. If demand is high, and people don’t mind sharing a double bed, an additional four people will be able to participate. John Osborne has kindly offered to oganize food for lunch on the first day, and a cooked breakfast on Sunday morning, for a nominal cost. Artists will BYO art materials, clothing, contributions for an evening meal and possibly a bottle or two of fine wine. Please let John know of any special food requirements. There are excellent cooking facilities and barbecues. It is suggested that participants buy lunch at the Centre on the Sunday. Participants are asked to meet at 10am at the Geeveston Visitors Centre. Further details will be provided in the coming months.
If you are interested please leave your name and details with John Osborne at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is a wonderful opportunity to see the extent of the regeneration since the fires, and with this exciting project, to be part of the regeneration of Geeveston itself beyond the fires and Covid.
