Category Archives: Big Skies Collaboration

Celebrating millennia of astronomies on the inland plains, Big Skies is a creative collaboration between arts practitioners, astronomers and local communities to share stories about people’s relationships with the cosmos, especially as experienced from Wiradjuri country, in central western NSW.

Arts OutWest is a partner in this project and received funding for the ‘Skywriters’ and ‘Art of Wiradjuri Constellations’ projects which have been funded over two years (2017-2018) through the federal government’s Regional Arts Fund.

An anthology of new writing ‘Dark Skies Dreamings’ has been published.

From this project sprang plans for the Inland Astro Trail.
