Ecological Footprint

20 JULY 2007:

two exhibitions opening

at the Serpentine Community Gallery

this Friday from 6pm -

Ecological Footprint


It Is Political

 -  An Artist's Commentary

  These exhibitions – are celebrations of nature,

walking the talk, climate justice,

growing strong communities,

reducing ecological footprints,

The opening,

just the start of an evening of art,

film and activism in North Lismore,

Food For Thought will screen three films

- Irati Wanti, Living Country and the short version

of Bradbury’s Hard Rain -

exploring the issues of uranium mining and the nuclear industry in Australia.
