Birds Upside Down - Cultural exchange with ARNA

Infogad bild 2


The project 'Birds upside down' is developed as an exchange between children in two opposite areas in the world, The Avian Kingdom in Sweden and Noosa biosphere reserve in Australia.


With common birds in the two areas as a starting points, the project has the aim to make children aware of how environmental issues affect the long time development of all living beings.


The pictures shown at Noosa Regional Gallery are created in the two villages Revinge and Veberöd in The Avian Kingdom by children in ages between seven and nine during September 2017.


Birds Upside down is developed by ARNA with support from Kultur Skåne in Sweden and in partnership with Noosa Regional Gallery and the artist Nicola Moss in Australia.


I'm excited to be meeting Kerstin from ARNA, Sweden in person in a little over a week. And seeing the children's drawings at Noosa Regional Gallery. Check out the free kids workshops here for details and be involved in Birds Upside Down.
