Dear all,

We have an amazing event coming up on the 13th March. We would love to see you there to share an inspirational journey! Would you like to experience and connect to country in a way you have never before? Children are welcome!

"Connecting to Country, sharing the stories", presented by the Victorian Child and Nature Connection and Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne

Join three acclaimed Australian artists on a journey to celebrate our connection to land, our past, our roots, our history and the synergies of cross-cultural meetings.

Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne

This unique workshop, set in Melbourne's beautiful botanic gardens, explores how we can help our kids develop a deep affinity with country and the natural world. Experience first-hand the stories of three acclaimed artists and how they utilise sounds, smells, sights, memories and emotions to express their strong ties to country.

William Barton, one of Australia's leading didgeridoo players, Delmae Barton, Dreamtime opera diva, and Glenn Romanis, sculptor and visual artist, will work with you outdoors, to explore the processes of connection, creation and collaboration to share the bond we feel to country.
A traditional Welcome to Country will be presented by Aunty Carolyn Briggs and a smoking ceremony by Trevor Gallagher.

There will be plenty of opportunity for networking.
