This one day symposium will focus on exploring how the writings and work of various artists have captured, responded to and echoed the landscapes that they lived within and travelled across. The symposium will have a particular focus on the work of Judith Wright and Kathleen McArthur, their engagement with the Sunshine Coast and links with the nascent environmental movement of the 1960s and 1970s. The scope of the symposium will also extend to encompass and investigate historical and contemporary arts based responses, and activism for and with the more than human world. The symposium will include a series of short papers and creative presentations.
