In partnership with the Dhudhurora Waywurru First Nations Corporation and the Thamarrurr Youth Indigenous Corporation and in conjunction with the Falls Creek Management Authority,  we are developing an immersive pop-up for Falls Creek  (Victorian Alps) for 2020.  Cold Front will comprised  scientific elements and traditional knowledge woven together to create an immersive and remarkable exhibition experience on snow weather and southern tundra and the animals that inhabit ecosystems from Antarctica to the Australian alps.

We  kindly thank the Kindred Sprits Foundation who  have awarded us with a grant supporting the design stage of this project.
