The role of artists and writers has been crucial in raising awareness about the specific characteristics and qualities of the Queensland environment. Through their activist involvement they were instrumental in bringing about changes to legislation and the establishment of certain national parks and protected areas.

Among those involved were Kathleen McArthur, working in collaboration with other creatives such as Judith Wright. This half day symposium will focus on exploring how the art, writings and work of these women and others including contemporary artists in the Wild/flower Women II exhibition have captured, responded to and echo our landscapes and natural heritage. 

The scope of the symposium will encompass and investigate historical and contemporary responses to art, environment and activism and feature presentations by the Wild/flower Women II artists and curators, as well as members of the Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland and others who continue the legacy of Kathleen McArthur’s work.
