Our River: Connecting our Communities

The new art installation titled ‘Our River: Connecting our Communities’ was produced by Fremantle artist Samantha Hughes in partnership with Canning Libraries, CREEC, and Riverton Primary School. 

The River environment was re-imagined by local children through a series of art workshops. 

The creative spark for our art installation began with a class visit to CREEC where children learnt about the flora and fauna endemic to our region. 

Throughout the project Sam drew inspiration from the children’s creative work in the design process and the final mural was completed by students painting the artwork.

“Together, the children illustrated and designed beautiful flora and fauna inspired by our eco-system bringing a natural vibrancy to the space” said Samantha Hughes, Artist.
