If these leaves could talk

Boroondara has a rich botanical history. Just imagine what the trees have seen and heard!

There’s still time to take part in the 2020 Boroondara Arts Initiative project ‘If these leaves could talk’, led by local artist Emily Shannon.

Join her in a series of free, online activities, and contribute to a community art collaboration. The art activities available include visual storytelling, drawing and sustainable art and craft. Required materials are everyday household items, readily accessible in the home and Boroondara residents of all ages are invited to participate.
