This year the Brunswick Nature Sculpture Walk (BNSW) is taking human impact on the environment as its inspiration.

‘No matter how much of a sceptic you are, it’s without a doubt that the planet is in trouble,’ said Prudence Clark, one of the organisers.

‘With the onset of global warming, rising sea levels, overfishing, coral bleaching and the enormous amounts of waste generated by Australians every year, the need to take action, or at least become more  informed, can’t be ignored.’

In order to raise awareness of such issues, this year’s BNSW encompasses all aspects of the environment, from the actual sculptures, to the materials used, to the setting of the exhibition itself.

Reflecting themes of the environment the artists have drawn attention to ecological issues with a focus on the need to conserve, reuse and recycle, rather than continue to live in such a disposable society.

With the exhibition set along the Brunswick River visitors will be able to  engage both with the sculptures and their environment.

‘Visitors are encouraged to immerse themselves completely in their surrounds, admiring not only the incredible artworks but also the natural environment itself,’ said Prudence.

The Brunswick Nature Sculpture Walk is a free event in Brunswick Heads that runs from September 28 to October 2.
