‘No Water, No Life’ represents a dry well and all that it symbolises.
Both water troughs and wells are used not only to supply and store water, but also historically as a meeting place for community to come together and share stories.
Water plays an important part of the history of Mullumbimby.
Established in the 1850’s at the junction of two arms of the Brunswick River, loggers floated their trees down river to Brunswick Heads. In 1925 a hydro-electric power station powered by nearby Wilsons Creek, allowed Mullumbimby to become one of the first country towns in NSW to receive electricity.
The work will be recycled after the exhibition.
