Captivating Communication Designs, Q and A with Erth

Live Event

Captivating Communication Designs, Q and A with Erth

For over thirty years Erth’s theatrical productions and innovative community projects have challenged, inspired and informed audiences around the world.

Erth is recognised internationally as an innovator of physical and visual theatre and a creator of brave, unbridled work for children.

Erth are partnering with the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney to bring the amazing ‘Under the Sea’ exhibition at The Calyx to life, and within this are mentoring students to create an inspiring Codium fragile community awareness installation.

This FREE virtual excursion invites students to

  • Join the Erth team to learn about the essentials of creating a captivating ‘Community Awareness’ design for Codium fragile.
  • Discover how to engage an audience and share knowledge in a way that stimulates people to consider how they too can care for the intertidal ocean zone and the living world within it.
  • Bring their burning questions on how to design an effective Community Awarenes prototype, or discuss any design ideas they have had so far!
