Plants out of Place is an exhibition celebrating the life of undesirable and wild growing species of plants in an urban environment. It is a sensory event that engages the public on an experiential level to re-think our values and approaches to sustainable practices. This project seeks to re-consider the values of wild plants and how we may utilise them to design for a better future, and examine how we can minimise our impact on the environment through the sharing of knowledge, ideas and taking on experimental approach to design.
There will be a series of talks and workshop during the event, which are open to the press and public.
