Hope Gardens Exhibition Launch
July 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+10
Launch: Thursday 6 July
Time: 6.00pm – 7.30pm
Location: VU at MetroWest, 138 Nicholson Street, Footscray
FREE EVENT – ALL WELCOME!
‘Hope Gardens’ is an installation of 10 miniature gardens designed and planted by horticulturalists from Footscray Community Arts Centre.
Inspired by ideas of urban waste and the effect of development on local plant life, the gardens are representations of the types of plants the gardeners would like to see in abandoned spaces across Footscray. The gardens are accompanied by a video piece animating oxygen —it’s effect on breathing and all living things.
Coming to the gardens you might feel a connection between plants, the air and place. The gardens may help you to relax. You may think they look nice. Some people may even like to watch them grow.
The Exhibition will take place from Friday 7 July – Friday 21 July at VU at MetroWest. The gallery is open from 9.00am to 5.00 pm weekdays.
This event is held in partnership with Foostcray Community Arts Centre
