Boon Wurrung artist Mitch Mahoney and Yorta Yorta artist Donna Blackall present Weaving Sustainable Culture, a sculpture exhibition inspired by the Kulin Nation waterway protectors, the Balayang (Fruit Bat) and the Waa (Crow).

Culminating in the form of canoes and woven fishing nets, these eco-sculptures were built by over 200 community members during educational workshops with the artists.
