A physical and digital exhibition featuring 8 Artists from the Eco Coffin Project

3-27 August, Monday-Friday, 9.00am-5.00pm

Niina Marni Café, Ground Floor, Gawler Civic Centre

This physical and digital SALA Exhibition features Eco-Coffins and Shrouds created by participants in the Eco Coffin Project, and is proudly presented by Gawler Environment Centre.

These powerful personal works of art and love raise questions about sustainable death and raise awareness of natural burial.

Climate change motivates us to live a more sustainable life but what about a sustainable death?
What is the impact on the environment of what happens to your body when you die?
What to wear for my natural burial?

Currently 70% of Australians are choosing cremation burning non-renewable natural gas and emitting toxins. Many are buried in lawn cemeteries creating toxic landfill issues and a high carbon footprint. Is there a better way?

The exhibition of eco-coffins and shrouds is the culmination of an arts-based, social change research project raising awareness of natural burial in SA, the only state to have natural burial in its legislation.

Event Type: Physical & Digital Art Exhibition (Gawler Civic Centre, Ground Floor, Niina Marni Cafe space)
