Event Information

Floating Land: point to point is the 2019 iteration of Noosa’s iconic biennial art event, featuring sculptural and performative installations in nature across two definitive and breathtaking sites – Boreen Point and Noosa National Park – and several spaces in between.

Extending on the pressing, poetic and ambitious works that are encountered in the natural environment during the Floating Land Biennale, the Floating Land Symposium provides a platform for in-depth discussion and a sharing of ideas around art’s ability to engage with the environment during a period of unprecedented urgency for action and change.

Across a series of compelling presentations, a gathering of notable artists and cultural leaders will reflect on the dynamic between art and environment; consider what’s at stake both materially and culturally; and investigate the creative inter dependency of Art’s Mark on the Environment, The Environment’s Mark on Art.
