Marine Debris Art Project

Ku Arts in association with Natural Resources Alinytjara Wilurara and Tjutjuna (Ceduna) Aboriginal Arts and Culture Centre present a two week skills development workshop with Ghostnets Australia.

Working with materials recovered through beach clean ups by the Yalata Rangers from beaches near the Head of the Bight on the west coast of South Australia, artists and rangers will create sculptural artworks that reflect the natural and cultural environment of the region. Two highly experienced art workers from Ghostnets Australia, Sue Ryan and Gina Allain, will facilitate the workshop and train local artists and arts workers in the techniques of building great works of art, large and small, from recovered materials. Check out our coverage of the workshop in progress here.
