Cultural landscapes: communicating ecological restoration (2017)$2,090
This project will build on a program of ecological restoration plantings in Ross, a community in Midlands, Tasmania. It will test the impact of creative practice as a catalyst for engagement with restoration ecology initiatives through the conceptual development, production, and implementation of creative works, and evaluate the Ross pilot research through cycles of qualitative stakeholder feedback embedded in community engagement activities, and quantitative evaluation of the functionality of objects within the restoration plantings.
