Group Arts and Creative Industries Award - 13 October 2015

The 'Tree of Knowledge' is a large 5-metre mosaic installed at Nuriootpa High School. This impressive mosaic is the result of a collaborative project between artists Kristin Wohlers, Kate Jenkins, Virginia Armstrong, teachers Ann Winters, Tegan Simmons and students at the school. The vision for this work was to make an original piece that all students and school community members could identify with and feel inspired by. The artwork has taken nearly 3 years to complete and has given the opportunity for over 200 students to become involved in a meaningful and valuable community project.
