(f)route artist in residence Samara McIlroy will be in the valley for the second part of her project, which kicked off with a Pop-Up Museum at the Taste of Tubbut in February. Travelling from Bonang to McKillop’s Bridge over three days (Tuesday 10th – Thursday 12th April) she is undertaking a mapping exercise to gather content for her speculative PASSIONfruit Portable Community Museum.
The PASSIONfruit Portable Community Museum is a celebration of community, local history and sharing the fruit harvest. Samara is seeking people who are interested in having conversations,  sharing personal stories, or passing on their knowledge and practical skills. It’s all about growing, cooking, preserving, eating and harvesting fruit.
Project outcomes will include:
·   Collated fruit histories, artist maps and audiovisual documents
·   Newsletter; online and printed
·   Prototype for portable museum
·   Design for a (f)route Cart
