BLACK COCKATOO SCULPTURE WORKSHOPS

Renowned artist Ken Allen joined us as artist-in-residence at Hawaiian’s Park Centre these past April school holidays, as part of the Town of Victoria Park Arts Season.

Sustainability met sculpture as Ken worked with recycled and reclaimed materials to create a permanent piece for the centre, raising awareness of one of the local area’s beloved, yet endangered, natural fauna.

Local children co-created with Ken during workshops held over two weeks, watching the Black Cockatoo come to life before their eyes.

We will be running a naming competition for the sculpture and we invite everyone to come to the Centre and see this masterpiece for yourselves.
