A night walk involving multimedia projections and soundscapes.
This walk researches the development of eco-tourism models, for public engagement with creative industries and academic research into arborglyphs, or modified cultural trees. It is being run in association with the Arboreal Alterations Symposium, held by Australian National University and the University of Canberra 2023.

Forest bathing is part of a Japanese landscape aesthetic designed to inspire reflection and meditation. The key message of this aesthetic is the acceptance and celebration of impermanence, to enable the full enjoyment of life.
Participating Artists include – Dr Sally Clarke, Dr Tracey Benson, Jane Duong, Nicole Voevodin-Cash, Caroline Huff, Dr Ursula Frederick and Fiona Hooton.

For hundreds of years, people have believed cork trees, also known as Wishing Trees, had magical powers to bring good luck. Join a cohort of Localjinnis as we throw light into dark places, make walking drawings, and discover the forest’s little-known secrets. Come and explore the enchanted forest, behold the wondering moon, and share the magic of night in collective safety.
