The Garden was designed to create greater access to the arts for people with a disability.
The Project was led by local arts workers Myf Powell and Giovanna Phillips and comprised of workshops of discovery at the Williamstown Botanic Gardens, where organic objects and plant specimens were collected under the guidance of the head gardener to then create light activated images. A series of workshops then continued over 4 weeks at The Substation to complete the work for the exhibition.
A collaborative installation art project that created colourful autumn inspired paper canopy, providing people with a disability with access to interesting, engaging and contemporary art projects and processes including the experience of a curated exhibition at The Substation. Some of the participants had never been to the gardens or The Substation before this project.
The Garden was exhibited in October 2011.
