Come along to see The Overwintering Project Printmaking Theatre and witness steamroller printing in action!

The large scale prints we will create on the day are from lino cuts created by students at Woolgoolga High School and Toormina High School. These students are working with local artists throughout October and November to raise awareness about the migratory shorebirds who make their home on the Coffs Coast over summer. These large scale prints will form part of The Overwintering Project exhibition to be held in the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery from 6 December - 1 February 2020.

Migratory shorebirds connect the world; their annual migration journeys bind sky, land and sea into a meaningful whole. Yet, migratory shorebirds are the most endangered but possibly least known group of birds. The Overwintering Project is a multidisciplinary, environmental art project that brings together artists, local high school students, scientists, birders and poets to address environmental impacts on migratory shorebirds and their habitats, including special places here on the Coffs Coast.

This project is supported by Create NSW's Audience Development Fund, a devolved funding program administered by Museums & Galleries of NSW on behalf of the NSW Government.
