Smokin’ kilns at Floating Land

Smokin’ kilns at Floating Land

Floating Land

Floating Land is a unique cultural event which explores environmental themes while creating and exhibiting temporary artworks in outdoor natural settings.
Its aim is to leave no impact on the environment but only to impact the minds of people who visit. Held at the magical Lake Cootharaba, this festival is a relaxed weekend of strolling enjoyment by the lake shores

As Noosa Regional Gallery Director, Christine Ballinger explained:

“The Floating Land program is a celebration of our natural environment – of light and land, and that most precious resource: water. These natural elements inspire our artists during the Noosa Long weekend each 2 years, but they remain a guide and gift for us all everyday.

Floating Land encourages everyone to watch exciting sculptural installations being created and artists’ presentations performed. It’s also a chance to feast with our creative community at our fun Sunset Suppers. This is an opportunity for everybody to be involved.”

I'd be very happy if you'd share this!
