Artists statement


Historical information

An unsanctioned Public Art Activation initiated and facilitated by a local residents Jos Van Den Berg and life partner Helen in response to the value they place on the environment in which they live in. When Steels Creek was threatened to become a toxic waste site in the late 1990's the community rallied to preserve this small patch of green space. Work continues to improve the local environment in all directions through Art interventions and direct environmental action, motivating council and community to collaborate and participate for a better environment.
