In July for the 2019 Way Out West Children’s Festival, ReFILL young artists brought their work and their mentorship to the Festival – working with over 200 young participants to create work for the giant pot. Some members of the public also took part in our Augmented Reality River Walk using the EYEJACK app to explore stories of the Georges River/ Toggerai.
