The drought had ended, and our region had succumbed to overland flooding. The context was different to ACRE 1, but the aim was the same – to encourage communities to re-imagine their landscape through the lens of the arts and creativity.
ACRE 2 involved presentations from artists, historians and farmers including Irish artist, writer and curator Fiona Woods; artist and farmer Neil Berecry-Brown; and The G.R.A.I.N Store chair William Kelly.
They shared stories of their communities thriving in a time of agricultural change.
ABC RN’s Michael Shirrefs featured the ACRE 2 Seminar on his Artworks program. To download audio and see images, visit
