5 February – 26 February

Regenerate is a project working with Shoalhaven primary schools and community members to look at the way Australian bushland responds to fire, in particular the regeneration that occurs in Australian bushland after bushfires. During 2021 Shoalhaven Regional Gallery supplied leaf and new growth templates printed on card for people to cut out and decorate in any materials, in either drab 'burnt' colours or bright, 'new leaf' colours. These were then installed on a series of hanging ribbons to create a curtain of colour and pattern for visitors to enjoy. Regenerate was developed by Orange Regional Museum and Orange Regional Gallery who then generously shared the project with Shoalhaven Regional Gallery to aid recovery and resilience for our school community after the lived experience of 2019-2020 Shoalhaven Summer of Fires.
