In 2016, the Alpine Resorts Coordinating Council of Victoria commissioned independent research into the effects of Climate Change on the Alpine region. The findings were startling, revealing that in the coming decade, the snow season could shrink from an average of 12 weeks to as little as 3 weeks. Falls Creek is home to a permanent community of people and several species which exist no-where else in the world and which rely on the current climate. I have been returning here over the last year and a half, working with the community.
I wrote a blog during my first visit, which you can read here. Subsequent visits haven't been blogged as we have been spending the time generating new work that will be exhibited in Falls Creek and Canberra during 2018 and 19.
