Regenerate is a communal creative exploration of the way Australian bushland responds to fire, in particular the regeneration that occurs in Australian bushland after bushfires. During 2021 and 2022, the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery supplied leaf and new growth templates printed on card for people to cut out and decorate in any materials, in either drab ‘burnt’ colours or bright, ‘new leaf’ colours. The result is a stunning collaborative installation, with thousands of leaves decorated by people of all ages from across the Shoalhaven, culminating in a curtain of colour and pattern for visitors to enjoy. Regenerate was developed by the Orange Regional Museum and the Orange Regional Gallery and has been adapted by the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery using the Regenerate Tool Kit. This exhibition is open daily from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm in the Visitor Centre Gallery at the Australian National Botanic Gardens.
