THE WEYBA PROJECT 2012 - 2014
In September 2012 Bianca Tainsh joined forces with non-profit community group Friends of Lake Weyba in a bid to save Lake Weyba in Queensland, Australia from a massive urban development. The aim was to promote the social, cultural and environmental significance of the area through creative acts, a feel-good alternative to activism.
Over the two year duration of The Weyba Project Bianca’s involvement became multi-dimensional as she alternated between the duties of artist, activist, curator, promoter, wildlife researcher and artistic director. The project materialised into a series of local, national and international events, resulting in a campaign that captured the attention and support of the public through positive actions.
