Open call to Queensland artists.
The State Library of Queensland has worked with award-winning digital artist Jason Nelson to create the Flood and Cyclone Mosaic as a way to showcase these diverse images – a tapestry of recent events through the eyes of Queenslanders. The project aims to collect photos from people and communities affected by disaster, a digital visual record of what happened to share with current and future generations, as a way of remembering, learning, understanding and healing.
Anyone in Queensland can contribute photos through this site, or at one of 60 libraries across 10 disaster-affected Queensland regions helping to collect photos from their areas.
The Flood and Cyclone Mosaic will be on display as one part of the Floodlines exhibition at State Library from 24 March to 13 May 2012. More information http://mosaic.slq.qld.gov.au/2011/11/07/hello-world/

Presented as a ten-day event, Floating Land brings people from across the Asia Pacific including visual and performance artists, cultural practitioners, writers, and educators together with the communities of the Sunshine Coast.
Floating Land is an ongoing conversation about creativity, the environment and culture.
The 2011 theme, Water Culture, continues these conversations and acknowledges that those of the Asia Pacific region are facing the adverse consequences of climate change due to their dependence upon, and close relationship with, the oceans, rivers and waterways.
The venue this year is Boreen Point, Lake Cootharaba in the UNESCO -listed biosphere of Noosa, with satellite locations at Coolum and Bli Bli on the Sunshine Coast.
