Let’s Get Dirty is an Art in Soil initiative by the Queensland Branch of Soil Science Australia informed by the arts industry. Both art and science are carried out as cultural acts valuing their environments and creativity, harnessing sense, and seeking to provide change via abstract models of our world. Let’s Get Dirty will follow numerous Artists' journeys over a six month period creating a piece of art inspired by soil. The Let’s Get Dirty theme has a playfulness and cheekiness, inviting people to become curious and explore the world of soils. Dirt is often associated with negative experiences, but this couldn’t be more wrong; without dirt, there would not be life. In this way we are reclaiming the notion of ‘dirty’ as a positive one for all society.
So, come on: “Let’s Get Dirty”!
