M~M2018 CANOE Artist Workshop Announced

Posted 12 April 2018

Canoe Artists Workshop:

Between 5 – 7 practicing artists will be selected to participate in a workshop with Canoe Artists.  You must be available on Sunday 22 April from 1.30pm – 4.30pm.

Expressions of Interest are sought from practicing artists wishing to participate in a workshop and mentorship program with Mountain to Mouth (M~M2018) Canoe Artists Kerrie Bedson and Leslie Pearson.


In the tradition of Wadawurrung, M~M2018 Geelong’s 80km Extreme Arts Walk creates a contemporary songline across the Geelong and Queenscliffe regions. Community ambassadors will carry Canoe, an international ephemeral sculptural commission, along the pathway over two days from the You Yangs mountain range to the Barwon River Mouth where it will be set alight and sent out to sea.  M~M2018 will commence at 10.30am on Friday 4 May and conclude at 6.30pm Saturday 5 May 2018.
