Can You See What We See
Can You See What We See? is an interdisciplinary walking tour inviting you to see your town from a traveller’s perspective. Inspired by Alain de Botton’s The Art of Travel this experience will encourage you to walk slower, think deeper and engage in your environment in ways you never expected.
Renae Shadler & Collaborators responded to Gippsland Arts Festival 2015 theme -‘Swap’, by creating a series of bespoke walking tours engaging with the region’s six local shires. They invited audiences on a tour performed and co-created by artists from their neighbouring shire (the travelers). Can You See What We See? makes the familiar unfamiliar by investigating our relationship to place, time and those around us through the context of travel.During the tour you will experience audio works, video installations and participatory activities that encourage you to experience Launceston through fresh eyes. Can You See What We See? will bring Renae Shadler and Collaborators together with local artists to create this one-of-a-kind experience.
