since 2 May I have been involved in the following:
- Laying of a cloth labyrinth in Dorrigo at Dangar Falls
- Walking of a double spiral for Domestic Violence Remembrance Day
- Laying of a cloth labyrinth at Armidale City Public School
- Laying of a cloth double spiral at Doody Park for Reconciliation Week with co-workers from the Aboriginal Health team from my work place. The spiral had words on A3 sized cardboard for people to reflect on the theme of Reconciliation placed at intervals along the path.
- Daisy William, the Director of the Keeping Place has asked if I would like to build the labyrinth at the Keeping Place, instead of NERAM, and said that she has found a lot of references to labyrinths and Aboriginal songlines (I’ll have to check it out). However, she envisaged co-designing a labyrinth with an Aboriginal artist perhaps, which makes it a different project than my original idea…
At the Domestic Violence Remembrance Day walk, I met the convenors who may be interested later in creating a permanent out-door spiral at Ken Jones park (diagonally opposite from the Toyota dealership on Markham St).
At the Armidale City Public School labyrinth, the president of the P&C suggested I might like to be involved in creating a permanent labyrinth for the school in 2014, and another person asked if I would be interested in creating a cloth labyrinth for the Uralla Festival in Uralla – of course I said YES!
On Friday 14th, another Aboriginal Health team colleague has asked if I would create another Reconciliation spiral at Guyra Central School for all the children to walk (and hopefully the teachers too). This will be from 10-11 am.
They say when one door closes, another opens… what delights me is that this is community support being shown, with me hardly even trying to generate it.
