TERRAIN – Mapping Strathnairn

TERRAIN was Strathnairn’s major centenary event, comprising land art installations and community workshops on the theme of exploring the environment.

Terrain was formally launched by Robyn Archer, Creative Director, Centenary of Canberra, on Saturday 11th May 2013 at 4pm.


Strathnairn Arts has published a book to celebrate our own fascinating history, from the property’s early colonial days as part of a land grant to Charles Sturt to becoming the vibrant arts community it is today.  The book, entitled Strathnairn – A Place for People, was researched by dedicated Strahnairn volunteer Maryann Mussared, written by historian Christine McCaffrie and edited by writer, curator and art historian Peter Haynes, with many contributions from people long associated with Strathnairn.  The launch of the book in April 2013 was scheduled to co-incide with the ACT Heritage Festival and the Strathnairn group exhibition Artist in the House curated by Peter Haynes. The book project was assisted through funding made available by the ACT Government under the ACT Heritage Grants Program. The launch of Strathnairn – A Place for People was held on Friday 19th April 2013 at 5pm with special guest Genevieve Jacobs from ABC 666 and was a wonderful occasion.
