Arts Centre Melbourne presents
Kaeru - Environmental Public Art Project (Japan)
A large scale, cross-cultural community art project
- a temporary installation of an enchanted garden at Hamer
During the month of August, renowned Japanese installation artist Hiroshi Fuji will be taking up residency at Arts Centre Melbourne to collaborate with Melbourne's Slow Art Collective and the people of Victoria.
The KAERU project is about renewal, transformation, sustainability and collaborative art - themes that celebrate Art Centre Melbourne's new Hamer Hall. Working with all kinds of recycled and organic materials Fujisan and the Collective extend an open invitation to local artists, students, and all the people of Melbourne to join them in creating an interactive garden installation on the upper terrace of the new Hamer Hall.
Structured workshops for school groups are available but anyone with a passion for creativity and sustainable, community driven art is encouraged to join us at our open studio!
So drop in for an hour, a day or come back regularly throughout
August to contribute to a piece of public art that celebrates the
rejuvenation of Hamer Hall and will inhabit a prominent place in
Melbourne throughout September.

1 - 24 August - Workshops and Drop-in Studio
