The Bush to Beach project was a new initiative in 2010 and was developed to connect remote children with the creative process of sculpture, local school children and the Swell Sculpture Festival. The aim, to give young people an opportunity that may not have been accessible to them.
The Bush to Beach project created an opportunity for ‘change’ by introducing two different communities together, using sculpture as the medium, primary age students in a regional community as the motivation, nature and the environment as the theme and a strong community behind it to nourish it.
FROM CLONCURRY TO CURRUMBIN
In September of 2010, a group of children from Cloncurry State School travelled from the north west of Queensland to visit the exhibition and participate in workshops with Pamela Denise. The ‘Curry Kids’ buddied up with local school children to create their own native bee and share in the experience of the creative process.
