Citizen Science: Speaking with the River

During March and April 2021, artists and scientists associated with the “Speaking with the River” exhibition led a range of interactive Citizen Science workshops that explored different ways of sensing and knowing the river.  New ways of seeing, listening, smelling, touching and tasting the Richmond river system were explored providing participants an opportunity to learn about the local Richmond River environment, it's history and current science based research being used to measure and manage river health.

The Citizen Science workshop program was supported by Ballina Shire Council, Southern Cross University (SCU), Art, Science and Environment Group LabX, and Create NSW’s Audience Development Fund, a devolved funding program administered by Museums & Galleries of NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
