Women & Outdoor Adventure Expo - She Went Wild

Australia's largest outdoor and adventure expo is on this Sunday December 3. 

I feel super honoured to be exhibiting some of my art, photography and adventures from A Wild Abandon: Awaken the Bear. 

I'll be joining exhibitors from all various kinds of sports and hobbies, from camping, hiking, climbing to cycling. Throughout the day, there are workshops that teach practical skills such as knot-tying, foraging, outdoor camping, how to identify flora and reduce waste in the wild.

There will also be exciting talks from seasoned female adventurers. Speakers include best-selling author, Heather Ellis who recently released her book UBUNTU, the story of her motorcycle odyssey around Africa. The She Went Wild stage will also host Lisa Blair, who was just awarded the the Spirit of Adventure award at this year’s Australian Geographic Society Awards. As well as a talk from Lauren Jones who has just completed a 1600k walking expedition the outback with her husband and one-year-old daughter.

Guys and families are welcome too! Kids are free. 

Date: 3 December 2017 9:30AM - 4:00PM

Location: Howie Complex Sydney Showgrounds.

Tickets: available online for $30, with 5% of  all tickets sales donated to One Girl, an organisation that helps to fund educational projects for young girls in Africa.

'A Wild Abandon: Awaken the Bear' Exhibition

'A Wild Abandon: Awaken the Bear' Exhibition

Very excited to announce that the first exhibition in my A Wild Abandon series will be launching in Newcastle at the end of this month.

A hybrid of adventure talk, photographs and pencil illustrations, the exhibition reflects on our last frontiers, pristine environments and the lessons for home.

It's inspired by my journey into the Chilcotin and the National Parks of the US and Canada last year. I'll also be sharing tales from the road, like accidentally cuddling a bat and kayaking with Grizzlies. 

The Newcastle Writers Festival Director Rosemarie Milsom will open the exhibition from 7pm on September 29 and there will also be music + tunes from 8pm with the amazing Kylie Jane playing. 

It's a little bit of a family affair too, with Ukulele Queen Olivia Green (aka my cousin) also debuting her tunes in a small-set and my sister Abbie Carragher sharing a few pieces from the same journey - where she joined me for four weeks.

Entry is donation and a percentage of prints will go to wildlife organisations connected with the place or animal depicted. Big thanks to Kathmandu and The Edwards. They have been beyond amazing, as always, in supporting me with this.

THE 'A WILD ABANDON' SERIES

With 10 per cent of the Earth’s wilderness lost in the last two decades, the A Wild Abandon series is a lifetime body of work dedicated to exploring remote, pristine, unique and/or vulnerable environments, as well as the link between people and place, adventure and art, solitude and instinct. Awaken the Bear is the first exhibition in the series.
