Hi all, this event has sold out. If you would like to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellation, write to and let us know!

To mark the closing of Asad Raza’s Absorption, we are delighted to partner with the Kandos School of Cultural Adaptation on the latest instalment of their ongoing series, An artist, a farmer and a scientist walk into a bar...

Within the immersive environment of Raza's installation, landscape architect, educator and host Costa Georgiadis sits at the “bar” with artist Ian Milliss, farmer Erika Watson (Epicurean Harvest), scientist Tim Cavagnaro (University of Adelaide) and Imogen Semmler (artist, scientist and farmer) to discuss their diverse collaborative projects and the intersections between the three disciplines.

An artist, a farmer and a scientist walk into a bar... is a platform for productive collaboration and exchange. While each project has a unique focus, all are anchored by strong engagement with regenerative models of farming, rural/urban interactions, and the potential of arts-led collaborations to inspire fresh approaches to the environmental challenges we face today.

Join us on the evening of the Federal Election to share freshly harvested wild food, drinks and stimulating conversation on pressing environmental issues and the importance of collaboration and community.

Entry to the event costs $35 and includes food and drink.

Food prepared by Forage to Feast, a collaboration between renowned forager and environmental educator Diego Bonetto and stylist, designer, foodie and weed convert Marnee Fox
Drinks provided by Trolley’d, who work in collaboration with Diego Bonetto to distil liquors infused with foraged weeds.
