'listening stones' a pile of stones with ears .. the ears are ours.
They are ears of those that heard/hear our local environment and fought to save it from the AGL proposition for Western Port, and continue to advocate for this wonderful area. Local Mornington Peninsula individuals who rallied and continue to rally to protect the place where we, and unique flora and fauna, live.
During the AGL people stepped to up say ‘no this is not right’.
The community effort was astonishing, and each person, from disparate backgrounds and circumstances came together as they heard the environment needed help.
While this is not unique to the Mornington Peninsula, our community is the only one that is ours … our ears to our place.
‘listening stones’ is a metaphor for a community who hear.
This event is open daily from 10.30am - 4.30pm and is free.
Evenings in secret locations across the beautiful Mornington Peninsula curated by artists for artists.
