Council commissioned a collaboration between digital multimedia company TEK Electronic Arts and the Aboriginal Heritage Office resulting in a new digital artwork entitled Turrumburra Storytelling. The work tells the stories of Turrumburra (Lane Cove River), the associated culture and history, across the passage of time and highlighting the interconnectedness of all things including the flora and fauna.
This temporary digital artwork and public installation was commissioned as part of Lane Cove's Festival by the River and was installed in Lane Cove Plaza for the period of 1-10 November 2021. Festival by the River is an annual festival that celebrates life on Lane Cove River with a range of events and activities.
The Daily by Kim Siew
Sydney-based artist, Kim Siew, has created this vibrant mural called The Daily on the rear wall of Lane Cove Newsagency facing The Canopy town square. What an amazing transformation!
With a playful reference to the newsagency that resides within these walls, The Daily also highlights the little routines that we create for ourselves to maintain a sense of connection with each other. Whether it's stopping for a coffee from our local, taking a walk along the neighbourhood streets or stopping to sit and read the paper within The Canopy square. These little habitual comforts are familiar to us all.
This artwork was completed in August 2021 as part of the Lane Cove Village Art Project; a public art initiative strengthening cultural and creative expression within Lane Cove. Public art is an exciting opportunity to create a vibrant and engaging atmosphere in the Lane Cove Village, preventing graffiti and enlivening public spaces.
