Inhalare / breathe upon aims to transform familiar landscapes into unfamiliar territories, allowing those who encounter Inhalare works to be transported. In stages, 12 regionally-based artists of NSW will explore natural environments close to home to develop soundscapes, writings and visual works capturing deep connections and hidden layers, allowing our imaginations to explore those environments that sustain us during times of restricted movement. This project responds directly to the impact of COVID on regional creative life in 2021.

INHALARE/ BREATHE UPON Stage 1 artist talk
Orana Arts Studio Co!Lab Lounge Series Roundtable
(Artists in conversation)
Join the Stage 1 artists online to hear about what drew them to the project and what it’s meant to collaborate remotely with other artists from across NSW. The Stage 2 artists will be announced at this event. Stage 1 of this project received funding from a Create NSW COVID Development Grant and is supported by Orana Arts.
ecoPULSE leverages funds raised through the Australian Cultural Fund (tax-deductible donations) and the sale of merchandise through Redbubble when applying for grants. Your donations help us do this. Money raised goes to paying regionally-based artists working on our projects. As a donor, you become part of our ecoPULSE community and we keep you in touch on all our projects.
As of 1 November, we’ve raised $375 of the $1,000 needed to fund two Stage 2 artists for this project. All funds donated through ACF until 1 February 2022 will go towards this project.
