Bimblebox 153 Birds  Inspired by the birdlife of the Bimblebox Nature Refuge, Bimblebox 153 Birds is a unique installation of artist prints, poetry, prose and musician’s birdcalls by over 440 people worldwide. Each of the 153+ bird species is given voice by a writer, an artist and a musician. The installation consists of individual bird prints, while the writers and musicians pieces are captured and presented on audio playing into the room.

Compact in its design, and unique in its concept, Bimblebox 153 Birds showcases creative responses across a broad range of printmaking techniques, writing styles and innovative music. Designed to ‘hang in the round’, it enthrals gallery visitors who love being surrounded by birds while it sparks stories and conversations. It’s our story of our birds, how we experience them and sadly how we are losing them. Bimblebox 153 Birds creates an inspiring cultural experience for Queensland and Australian communities.
