Corridors of Connection - photographic essay featuring Billabong Creek
Would you like to share your place on the creek?
The Billabong Creek is the longest creek on earth, winding its way from the foothills of the Great Dividing Range to the plains of southern central New South Wales. Murray Local Land Services is funding a photographic essay to capture the great diversity of places and spaces along the vital and unique creek featuring 20 different places that have connection to The Billabong Creek.
The images will be part of an online gallery and will be featured in an exhibition in late 2017 to which all participants and communities along the Billabong Creek will be invited.
For this essay, they seek 20 properties/places (private or crown) located anywhere along the creek, from Walbundrie in the east to Moulamein in the west. It may be your place, or you may like to encourage family, friends or neighbours to share their connection to the Creek.
The aim is to capture in images and anecdotes the essence of the Places of the Creek. It could be a place you live, or your ancestors lived. A place you farm, camp, fish, drove, built a cubby house, swim, pump water from, farm, water livestock or garden, because the creek and its waters are present.
To register your interest in being one of those 20 places shared or for more information please contact Helene Mortlock at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0409 029 564.
Please get in touch ASAP as times to shoot will be booked soon.
