Opening 6.30pm Friday 6 September

Wetlands are one of the most valuable ecosystems on Earth. They store three times more carbon than terrestrial forests, improve water quality, and are home to a diversity of species. Wetland Wander is an art-science collaboration that aims to inspire engagement and conservation of these critical ecosystems. Led by wetland ecologist Fernanda Adame, sound artist Leah Barclay, walking/media artist James Cunningham, and multimedia artist Suzon Fuks, Wetland Wander incorporates knowledge from current and traditional landowners within Quandamooka (Moreton Bay), and Nywaigi, Gulgnay and Girramay Countries (Queensland, Australia).
