Branching Out: Stories from the Blue Mountains Exhibition

Branching Out: Stories from the Blue Mountains was an event of the Blue Mountains Music Festival, held from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th March 2007, in the Festival Exhibition Hall of Katoomba Public School, Merriwa Street, Katoomba.

Branching Out was a mixed media exhibition using the eucalypt to bring together local contemporary artists, community groups and organisations to share their stories, reflections and experiences of the Blue Mountains, from historical and contemporary perspectives.

The exhibition featured works from over 20 local contemporary artists and contributors, covering a range of media from drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, video, poetry and writing.

It was a rare opportunity for local audiences and visitors to the Festival to gain insight into the rich stories of the Blue Mountains community.

This event was presented by the Blue Mountains World Heritage Institute and supported by Blue Mountains City Council in partnership with Katoomba Public School and the Blue Mountains Music Festival.
