During August 2020, the Water Walks project drew Canberrans together to discover and document their neighbourhood creeks. Three groups of around twenty people, each led by a local artist or photographer, an ecologist, historian or water educator and a writer, walked for an afternoon along Weston, Jerrabomberra and Sullivan’s Creek, following these flows through underground tunnels, concrete drains, abandoned paddock and constructed wetlands.


Inspired by experienced local photographers and expert ecologists, historians and writers, during August 2020 three groups will investigate, walk and document often overlooked neighbourhood waterways. Using their cameras to record their experiences, the groups will follow Weston, Jerrabomberra and Sullivan’s Creeks as these streams navigate the city via drains, wetlands and tunnels. The participating photographers will each then contribute images to the Water Walks exhibition, with local writer and environmental historian Cameron Muir contributing a linking text narrative.

The Water Walks program and exhibitions are PhotoAccess initiatives presented as part of the Where You Are Festival and made possible through the support of the ACT Government.
