White Bluff Project
The rocky headland of White Bluff, north of the regional city of Coffs Harbour, is the starting point for the White Bluff Project, which seeks to explore the shared experience of coastal spaces by bringing together a group of artists, scientists and Coffs Coast Community members. White Bluff sits on the border of local Indigenous territories and is now surrounded by development on its landward edge and on its littoral and off-shore waters, protected by the Solitary Islands Marine Reserve. The area is somewhat of a microcosm of the forces, histories and prospects of many occupied lands. By focusing in on a particular context fraught with broader concerns and potential, the project facilitates a site-specific engagement with the transformative effects of climate change and urbanisation while celebrating the beauty, fragility and unique discoveries to be found in local landscapes. The White Bluff Project is in partnership with Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery, bringing research and art together to inspire the development of new art forms and approaches to creative practice, culminating in an exhibition currently on show at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery until January 15, 2022.
