A potted history of Liverpool created by young people.

The young artists from Miller Technology High invite WOW participants to help create a potted history of Liverpool.

The history of the river, as a Darug and Tharawal meeting place to Liverpool's urban history of rapid change will be illustrated - piece by piece - using clay tiles, engraving, printing and painting - all pieces of a mosaic for a giant GARDEN POT to be given to the Bellbird Garden as a gift!

Edible Country will run for two days across the WOW Festival as an interactive art stall located beside the river.

Participants come away with one work for home and one work which will be incorporated in this permanent artwork, on display at the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre for future generations!

Places are limited per session.
