About the Work

The Kaleidoscope project is a creative collaboration between five Townsville secondary school classes, local artist Jo Stacey, and Townsville City Galleries. Channelling themes of urban environmental sustainability, this project seeks to highlight the beauty – in the form of butterflies - of a garden habitat when planted with native flora. Students learned a range of art techniques and created individual artworks in a series of workshops that culminated in this collaborative and ephemeral artwork. See if you can spot each of the native butterfly species in Kaleidoscope on The Strand!
