Australian Earth Law Alliance (AELA) Earth Arts program

AELA’s Creative Conversations series brings together artists to share stories about their work and what inspires them. On 12 April Dr Michelle Maloney, AELA’s Co-founder and National Convenor will facilitate the webinar with Merete and me.

This webinar is part of AELA’s programs that connect people across Australia and around the world by five core themes: changing culture, reconnecting with what matters, building community, building alternatives and transforming law and governance.

AELA “is a national not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to increase the understanding and practical implementation of Earth centred governance in Australia, with a focus on law, economics, education, ethics and the arts”. AELA states that “Cultural change is a vital part of building Earth-centred governance, and AELA’s Earth Arts Program showcases artists and creatives from around Australia who are working on nature inspired creative practice”.

AELA’s Webinar Guest Speakers: Merete Megarrity and Renata Buziak

Merete is a visual artist and Doctor of Visual Arts candidate at the Queensland College of Art, Meanjin. Her research explores the intersection between sculpture, installation, sound, video, ecology, and art history and focuses on how an installation practice can help an audience make kin with the more-than-human in the context of environmental breakdown. Visit Merete’s website.

Renata Buziak is a biochrome photomedia artist, educator and researcher helping people to reconnect with nature. Her PhD research (2015) focused on medicinal plants of Minjerribah in consultations with the Quandamooka Peoples. In 2022 Binna Burra Lodge invited Renata to create her signature biochrome images on the Binna Burra Cultural Landscape; and develop and lead a new Art. Nature. Science. Program.


Join us on the 12th of April for presentations by Merete and Renata, and a conversation on art inspired by nature.
