Artists Camp September 7 – 15, 2013

Bimblebox Art Project offers artists the opportunity to explore and creatively document the Bimblebox Nature Refuge.

The Bimblebox Nature Refuge comprises of semi arid, remnant bushland and is habitat for a broad range of Australian flora and fauna.  However due to plans for massive coal extraction in the Galilee Basin Bimblebox Nature Refuge is currently threatened to make way for coal mining.

This issue of mining the coal under Bimblebox Nature Refuge is much bigger than this 8000 hectare wildlife haven.  The Galilee Basin is the site of multiple proposed ‘greenfield’ mining projects.  If the Galilee Basin is opened up for coal export it has the potential to tip our planet into dangerous climate change.

This is the issue of our time and we as artists are in a unique position to explore, comment and actively engage in this issue.  This is your opportunity to be in the Galilee Basin.
