I was excited to receive my copy of this postal exhibition (aka booklet). I was commissioned as a contract curator last year, to write the text and put together the content, by the wonderful Ziebell’s Farmhouse Museum and Garden. The publication is being delivered to every household in Thomastown and Lalor. The project hopes to build interest in caring for and re-wilding the creek in this area. Thanks to all those that assisted with information and illustrations. Viewable online at Turning Back to Edgar’s Creek Postal Exhibition
Artworks glimpsed here are Edgars Creek by Wurundjeri artist Stephen N, through the Torch, and kindergarten students from Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child and Family Centre. The photo of the family by the creek in 1943 is by Ruby Pettit, supplied by Robert Wuchatsch, and the photos of the local birds are by Paul Gleeson from the Friends of Edgars Creek, and Merri Creek Management Committee. Booklet design is by Leon Borrack.
