Meeting of the Waters: Locative Media Oceania (LMO) was an online program, presented 18
September and 4 October 2021.
LMO explored the themes of water, climate change, deep time and cultural knowledge through creativity in a virtual education setting. The 2.5 week course engaged participants from around the world to develop location based artworks in relation to the Oceania region.
LMO is a collaboration between Supercluster (Geert Vermiere and Fred Adam) and Treecreate (Tracey Benson), hosted and funded by the Centre for Applied Water Science, University of Canberra. A partnership with PhotoAccess and the Australian Water Partnership.

Design for engagement
For over twenty years, we have been designing and developing behaviour change and communications programs and strategy, websites and interactive tools for small businesses, NGOs and government. Our focus is on creating engaging experiences which are inclusive and focused on the needs of the audience.
We at Treecreate work across a range of sectors including arts, education and government and our founder Tracey is often invited to give presentations on a broad range of subjects including emerging media and digital cultures, sustainability behaviour change, eco-activism and the role of the Sacred through deep listening and connecting to the world around us.
Workshops focus on applying user centred design and design thinking with participatory action and social practices theories and methods. Our goal is to facilitate and empower people to make changes which are in alignment with environmental awareness and the need for transformational change. We work with all ages to encourage creativity, exploration and self expression.
Online and guided meditations and walks
We also offer online and guided meditative tree walks, aimed at developing mindfulness practice and improving health and wellbeing. We have worked in Norway, the UK, Europe, New Zealand and Australia with all kinds of community groups of all ages and abilities.
