TST16 is a 2 week celebration of art, environmentalism, and country where
professional artists will create site-specific sculpture alongside community
and local youth in the forested sculpture trail.
Toolangi Sculpture Trail 2016 is a coming together of local community, professional artists and passionate environmentalists. The project was conceived to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the International Sculpture Event UNESCO through a program of events that centre on an artist’s residency in the forest. What makes this event so unique is that the sculptures are created using natural materials sourced mostly from the surrounding Toolangi State Forest.
Visitors to TST16 can participate in environmental art workshops, learn Indigenous weaving, take day and night tours of the forest, and learn about country through Indigenous storytelling, artist and environmentalist talks, and much more! Workshops for youth and the community will provide an invaluable creative opportunity to survivors of the Black Saturday bushfires of 2009 who are continuing to rebuild their lives. The sculptures they create will be installed alongside that of the artists in residence to join the remaining artworks of the 1996 ISE to tell the ongoing stories of the Toolangi Sculpture Trail.
These amazing activities are scheduled for 6 – 20 November but we need your help to make it all a reality. We have 2/3 of the funding required and most of our events are free to encourage as many people as possible to come and explore all that our region has to offer. We are a diverse and vibrant community who want to share our passion for art and the environment. We also want to grow this into a regular triennial event, creating a space where art and science can meet to explore the continuing environmental issues of our time.
