Caring for Country - Indigenous history
Take the time to also explore and discover the indigenous history and importance of the Lakes - we'll be providing some more materials in our coming blog-posts but here's a taster, with local representative Gavi Duncan telling some of the local stories of important cultural sites as part of Reconciliation Weeks Catchment Crawl.
Our understanding of a place is always enriched when you hear how it's viewed through indigenous eyes, take the time to explore its history and importance through others eyes. Our work in indigenous health settings at Laughing Mind and connection to peers at Culture Is Life has helped us understand why Connection to Country is important and helps sustain positive culture and health.
With Picnic Point acting as one of our event spaces, we know there's quite a few skaters that like to hit the place at dusk. With a variety of spots, there's some great options to capture the motion of your latest tricks, by lighting up your boards and obstacles. Here's some examples of things we can do in partnership with you, using some simple DIY kits from AdaFruit and a helping hand from the Central Coast Makerspace run by SparkCC at West Gosford.
When it comes to lighting up the night, there's nothing that primes our senses quite like a good old lightning storm. Here's a great little article by the Maker crew at MakeUseOf for how to build your own portable lightning cloud.
Be brave, jump in and explore - who knows, you might just meet some other storm-makers on the path!
LumenMotion (www.lumenmotion.com) is a festival to celebrate the fusion of Light and Human Powered motion, enhanced by lightweight technology + clean tech power, allowing us to creatively visualise loved landscapes and places with new, transient artworks.
Designed for easy entry participation for enjoyment by all ages and families, it's also a little STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts + Maths) exercise for those who want to take their participation to the next level.
