Regenerate Toolkit

Ongoing

Are you a public Museum, Gallery or other cultural institution located in a fire-effected community?

Following on from the success of our Regenerate project Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum have developed the Regenerate Toolkit—a practical guide for fire-effected communities interested in developing their own, site responsive version of Regenerate.

The Regenerate Toolkit is available for free to public Galleries, Museums and other cultural institutions. Contact our Engagement and Education Officer on 6393 8133 for more information.

Regenerate is a creative exploration by local primary school students of how Australia’s bushland responds to fire. Over 2,000 local primary school children have participated in the project to date, decorating thousands of cardboard leaves to represent the burning and regeneration of the bushland on Mount Canobolas following the fires in 2018.

Regenerate is a collaborative project developed by the SPARKE learning network, Orange Regional Gallery and Orange Regional Museum.

This project is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
